Naomi Campbell’s first Bollywood venture attacked by Hindus

Supermodel Naomi Campbell’s first Bollywood film Karma, Confessions and Holi opened with dreadful reviews in India with Hindus branding the film ‘undignified disaster’ and an ‘unholy mess.’
The film, directed by Manish Gupta and co-produced by Robert De Niro’s daughter Drena, has bombed badly at the box office.
“Hindus have strongly objected to the usage of Hindu terminology in movies and Karma, Confessions and Holi has nothing much to do with karma or Holi,” Contactmusic quoted Rajan Zed, the president of Universal Society of Hinduism, as saying.
“Hindus welcome world filmmakers making films about Hindu subjects but taking Hinduism seriously and respectfully and not re imagining its concepts and symbols just for mercantile greed.
“Holi and karma have definite meaning for devotees, and improper usage of such terms is not OK,” he added.
