Bollywood mega-star crosses over to American television

Diversity on TV has come along way in the last couple of decades. Whether it’s the issues on comedies and drama or actors taking on certain roles, it’s a far cry from the milky white days of the 1950s. The star of ABC’s new drama Quantico is yet another example.
