British actresses who appear in Bollywood films are being targeted in a hate campaign by one of India's most feared political leaders

Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), a Mumbai nationalist street gang and political party which inspires terror throughout the city, has called on foreign white actresses to go home. His campaign for a ban on the estimated 1,000 British and other foreign actors who regularly appear in Bollywood films has been widely criticised but many foreign actors are too afraid to speak out. Thackeray is especially feared in Bollywood, where he has the power to shut productions and close cinemas. The campaign for a ban comes as increasing numbers of European and South American actresses are finding roles in Bollywood movies.
