“Oh no,” wrote actress Natalie Portman, while one user said: “This is the equivalent of tagging Christina Aguilera in a photo of Britney Spears.”

“I am very happy to see many more Indian faces on TV and in the arts and in publishing… It was hard to be an immigrant in the 1970s and 1980s. I am lucky that I managed to somehow find a place for myself. It is not like that I had a grand plan. There was no guarantee that I would be successful,” she said while reflecting back on her journey.
