Avengers 'slammed' for Indian slum scene
London, May 8 (ANI): 'The avengers' has drawn criticism from several Bollywood stars, who are dismayed about the poor depiction of India in its opening scene.

"Kolkata has a rich culture and heritage, and a filmmaker should respect that. There are two scenes about India, and they only show slums. It could have been done in better taste," the Daily Express quoted Rituparna Sengupta was quoted as saying.
Another Bollywood actress, Neha Dhupia also expressed her concerns at the portrayal of India in Hollywood.
"It is disturbing to see the murky underbelly of India in Hollywood films. But before pointing it out to the West, we need to make efforts to change their perception about us," she said. (ANI)
