Shocking! Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta faces racism at a hotel in Kerala
Racism or racial discrimination is done against individuals on the basis of their skin colour and country of origin. The ill practice has been stopped by the Indians long back but somewhere somehow it exists. And Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Gupta was the latest celebrity to face racism and that too in our own country. Unfortunate, isn’t it?
On Saturday, filmmaker Sanjay Gupta took to his Twitter page and revealed an experience he went through at a hotel in Kerala. The filmmaker vented his anger out in his tweet and revealed that he felt that the hotel staff were being racist towards him.
In a tweet, the ‘Kaante’ director posted photos of a Sea Gull hotel located in Fort Kochi and said that he got his first-hand experience of absolute racism.
Got my first hand experience of absolute racism. The deck on the waterfront in this pathetic place is for goras only. They have empty tables but won’t give them to Indians claiming they’re reserved.

It is to be noted that there have been many instances where Bollywood filmmakers and celebrities were ill-treated outside India including the superstar Shah Rukh Khan. However, this did not go down well with the Indian community in and outside the US and authorities at the immigration centre in the airport were slammed for ill-treating SRK.
Sanjay Gupta is a filmmaker, who has given Bollywood many films, which are daring and unorthodox. Sanjay Gupta’s last directorial was Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starrer ‘Kaabil’. In the 21st century, there is no place for racism and India’s great beauty is plurality in diversity.
