Bollywood Workers will not Work in Australia

You already know that Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan has refused to take a honorary doctorate degree from an Australian university to protest against the attack on Indian students in Australia recently. Now, it seems that the whole Bollywood is in its way to go against Australia over the attack which is thought to have been motivated by racism.

Now, reports have it in the media that Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), the biggest labor union of Bollywood, has refused to work in Australia now. Two Bollywood movies were supposed to be shot in Australia this month, but the labor union made it clear that none of their members will work in Australia before the racism issue is properly resolved. The union, which has 250,000 workers including actors and other technicians, has recently issued a notice to the producers of Bollywood on this regard.
