At a time when many minority groups are hoping for accurate representation in the media, it is uttNewerly disappointing to see megastar Shahrukh Khan doing the opposite. The Muslim actor, who needs no introduction, is producing Netflix’s Bard of Blood, and still going with the ‘Muslims are terrorists’ stereotype.
Sticking to stereotypes is not helping your case. In the biz, this is normally something white producers are accused of, but Indian producer Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Bard of Blood‘ is no different. It is only fair that we ask that is he a brown Muslim apologist? Or just racist without even realizing it?
Here’s the trailer for Bard of Blood:

Its not just Shahrukh Khan who should be the subject of our ire. The project also includes Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is also an Indian Muslim as well. Even the protagonist Imran Hashmi is.
