Ok so one thing I've noticed in Bollywood is that if you are of mixed heritage or aren't from India, you aren't very welcomed into industry. By 'welcome' I mean to say is that at first he/she gets his big break and gets remarkably noticed but soon after, their popularity seems to decrease year by year.

Dia Mirza who's half German/Bengali debuted in Rehna hai tere dil mein and I sincerly think she was pretty good in it; for a debutant. Dino Morea who's father is Italian and mother is Anglo/Indian didn't really get noticed in his debut film however his 3rd film, Raaz, was an instant hit. It was critically acclaimed and Dino was also praised for his acting. All of Shashi Kapoor's kids tried their luck but none of them had much of an impactful career even though their father was a superstar during the 60s and 70s. Now I know at least someone will point out Miss Kaif and how she's doing so well even though she isn't from India but how come she only made it this far?

Today, almost all of these mixed origin stars are no where to be found even though some of them have the talent, looks, etc. So my question is, is Bollywood somewhat I dunno, racist?

Trying to rack my brain and think of someone else who's of mixed heritage but I'm coming up blank. I don't think they're racists, but perhaps Diya and Dino lacked that 'star quality' that people are always referring too. Or they just didn't friend up the right people :P
