Welcome to Humor Nation. One that the Bollywood industry still suffers with is the racial stereotypes, like if someone has a dark complexion then they become undesirable, if a person is gay then they become overly flamboyant. And the people who are short in height, the dwarfs, the midgets..they serve as a comic relief. There are various few movies in Indian film history that shows their love story. While a lot of films don’t stay away from going beyond the limit, crossing limits, all to exaggerate and demean such people. There are many Bollywood movies that resorted to racism in the name of entertainment.
So Let’s Take A Look At 5 Offensive And Embarrassing Racism Moments In Bollywood Films
1. Kambakkht Ishq (2009)
The film was a critical and commercial failure. In this terrible comedy movie, there’s a scene where Kareena Kapoor tells the Airport security officials that Akshay Kumar is carrying drugs. So the Airport security officials tell Akshay Kumar that he has been selected for a random private security check. Kumar’s character is a player who sees this as a ploy to get cozy with the female officer. What happens next is an obese African woman takes over the search procedure, she acts over the top dramatic, and doesn’t search Kumar in the normal way. She wrestles with the man, searches him in the intrusive sensitive areas possible in the most rough way. The African security official is portrayed as a barbaric, rough, sadistic woman.
2. Judwaa 2 (2017)
While the film was a commercial success, but it was terrible. Remake of the film of the same name starring Salman Khan. There’s a scene in the film where the main character Raja finds himself in the streets of London getting confronted by the goons. These goons are African people and then we notice that these men have West Indian accents. And these goons accompanying their leader have the names of all the players of West Indian cricket team. Then what happens next is Raja starts singing the ‘Champion’ Theme song and starts dancing with them.
