Hollywood racist ? Not a chance.

They do require one basic thing though: TALENT.

He must be mad because they wonít let him do a remake of the GodFather filled with gay singing and swami dancing ROTFFLMFAO

What about the recently new hit show called Royal Pains ? One of the lead stars is an Indian named Reshma Shetty.

Besides being highly talented and hot, she speaks with a British accent, not the typical marblemouth accent.

Sounds more like Dev Patel is just angry because nobody in Hollywood wants to have anything to do with Bollywood.

Who could blame than for that ?

The list of award winning Hollywood stars from Asia is very extensive. They only want talent, and Bollywood just canít deliver LMAO

With a name like Shetty or Deep, I wouldn't give them a job in Hollywood. Also, when Indians talk I can't understand a word they say. It sounds like a retarded person. They can't speak English well.

The India people are very prejudice people, and they want to be white so damn bad, They actually have the nerve to dislike any one of color, when they are dark skinned themselves, and now Patel wants to cry like a little girl about Hollywood, dude whatever now you see how we feel when your people look down on us, Don't feel so good doesn't it. My point, Accept the fact that you guys will be treated just like black people, mexicans and Asians in America stop acting and thinking that you will get the white carpet buddy.
