Mohit Suri directed movie ‘Crook-It’s Good To Be Bad’ is in Australian trouble, the movie is being panned down by the Australians as it is based on the racism issues of Indians in the country.

The Emraan Hashmi starrer movie has been termed as “badly researched”, and accused of “misrepresenting” facts by the media agencies in the country.

Even the movie didn’t go well down with Indians as well, Gautam Gupta, spokesman for the Melbourne-based Indian Students Association add further, “In the film, local men are portrayed as beer-guzzling blokes while women are shown as promiscuous, pole-dancing blondes.”

A blogger from Australia says, “They have performed their research so badly, it’s shocking. This film would be banned in Australia due to the racist content.”

Shocked by all these reactions, Mohit says, “I am facing flak from both sides. Indians are saying that the film is pro Australia, and they are saying it shows them in bad light. I think Australians should watch the film as a cinematic experience.”

The director continues, “The film does not show them as ‘wrong’.” About allegations that the film is poorly researched, he says, “I have just made a film. At 28, don’t expect me to have a cure to racism worldwide. I have just expressed my opinion.”
