    I found the comment that there were no Indian actors in the movie to be quite interesting.

    TigerYogiji replies: That seems to have been the standard practice for Hollywood in those days to cast caucasian actors for asian or south asian roles. It continues today with the upcoming live action movie based on the “Avatar” cartoon series (not to be confused with the recent film of the same name) where the characters are asian, yet the roles are all going to white actors! Studios are afraid that an all-asian cast will not draw crowds, which is crap if the film is good enough! Look at the sucess of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. People in Hollywood are idiots…
