GoalJohn-Bipasha face racism in London

The actors and the crew of Vivek Agnihotri's movie Goal faced racism while shooting the film in London.

For more than two months now, Agnihotri has been shooting 'Goal' in London with the movie's stars John Abraham , Bipasha Basu and Arshad Warsi .



Since the movie's story revolves around football, the unit has been shooting the film in long and physically stressing schedules that usually began in the evening and continued till the wee hours of the morning.

While most of the shooting of the film went without hiccups, there were some unsavory incidents.

Reports quote Agnihotri as saying that during some shootings the white Londoners used to make comments about the skin color of Indians and called some members of the shooting team "bloody Indians".

Agnihotri, who had had similar experience while shooting his previous film Chocolate in London, did not respond to any of these racist remarks.

Even the movie's actors John, Bipasha and Arshad Warsi were not spared of racism. Some whites allegedly made fun of John while he was shooting for football match sequences (John plays a footballer in the film).

On a different occasion when Bipasha and Arshad were waiting on a traffic signal, two white guys began singing a rap song that made fun of Indians. The two actors did not respond them back.

Agnihotri says he will respond to such racism through his film in which some sequences deal with this issue.
