Look OK.

I feel like something should be said about "Brown washing" what should be one of the most Anglo roles in the culture to an Asian Indian. I'll get back to everyone about my level of outrage. I like Dev Patel but he's taking work away from an Anglo actor!!!! OMG BBQ!

YUP!! This is almost as ridiculous as casting a native Norwegian to play a Congo tribe member.

Margot Robbie should play Draupadi in an Anglicized version of the classic Hindu Epic Mahabharata.

It should be safe since Hindus are peaceful and wouldn’t mind anyone appropriating one of the most important mythos of their culture, amirite?

Hindus are big on karma and this could win Margot some seriously needed good karma after Birds of Prey.
