Why should I?” The actor also feels racial discrimination is same everywhere, even with the foreigners who come down to India. “Goras also face it when they arrive here. You think it doesn’t happen with them? You feel we greet them with a smile and say we are so nice to you come give us a hug? Racism happens everywhere.”
While Akshay agrees that racism is pure evil, he also thinks one needs to be strong enough to stay unaffected. “Racism happens and it is bad. You get over it. Who cares? Don’t get serious. Why does it affect you? You should be strong enough and have the confidence to not let it affect you.”[/tps_footer]
