A few days ago, the leaders of the film union alleged that many foreigners have been working in Bollywood for years without proper work permits. Leaders also said that gradually the trend of casting foreigners in Bollywood is increasing. People hire foreigners for everything from artists to experts, making it difficult for Indian people to get employment.
