Speaking about racism amid the COVID-19 pandemic, actress Laishram, reveals that she was followed by two men and continued to call her “corona virus”.
Hailing from Manipur, Lin Laishram is an Indian actress who has prominently worked on Bollywood movies such as Om Shanti Om, Mary Kom, Axone, and Rangoon. The Manipuri beauty has represented North East on a global podium, however, her homeland isn’t as welcoming as it should be when it comes to accepting her as any other Indian, be it in reel or real life.
The actress said, “It was sickening to believe that we’ll be treated in such a manner in our own country”. Lin further added that Bollywood needs to be more inclusive and normalise having North Easterners, not just as an ornamental or geographical representation, but merely Indians.
