Indians Are Outraged At Upcoming Hollywood Film ‘Basmati Blues’ Portrayal Of India

Remember when they’d make Hollywood movies about foreigners visiting India and create a very stereotypical image of the country? Just when you thought that era was over, the ‘Basmati Blues’ trailer is here to prove you wrong.

The trailer was released on November 9th and left everyone with one question, “Are we back in the 90’s?”

Netizens didn’t hesitate in showing their disapproval either and here’s how Twitter reacted to the trailer:
