BASMATI BLUES MAK­ERS APOL­O­GISE FOR TRAILER

HT City - - Front Page -

Mak­ers of the Hol­ly­wood film Basmati Blues, star­ring ac­tor Brie Larson, have apol­o­gised after its trailer was thrashed on so­cial me­dia for “gen­er­al­is­ing” In­dia’s cul­ture. Brie’s char­ac­ter of a Amer­i­can sci­en­tist is shown meet­ing stray goats, eat­ing spicy food, and get­ting her feet washed in brass plates in In­dia. “Un­for­tu­nately, the in­ter­na­tional trailer has given the wrong im­pres­sion of the film’s message and heart. We deeply re­gret any of­fense caused,” reads the state­ment by film­mak­ers Monique Caulfield and Danny Baron.
