Bollywood Goes For White Women?

Sunday, March 21, 2010

I got this sent in (thanks LJ) and while I can't say that I know every single Bollywood flick out there, nor have I been keeping up with all the trends - and know nothing about the MNS - this article does offer some fodder to chew on:

Jag Mundra, a leading director, was willing to speak out against the MNS and their nationalist campaign. Unfortunately, what he said made his side sound no better than Thackeray's.

"The reason producers pick white girls is because a lot of them have better figures and are willing to expose them," he said. "If you need a bikini shot, not many Indian girls are willing to turn up in a string bikini. But most white girls will not have an issue with that. Titillation has been an important part of Bollywood."

While I can't quite verbalize everything I'm thinking right now, I can at least say this much:

I think Bollywood can do with one less director who has a subscription to the Whites Only Beautiful Club.
