U.K. filmmaker backs protest against Modi – The Hindu

Leslie Udwin, who made the critically acclaimed documentary India’s Daughter, has voiced her support for protests organised against Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to London on November 12. Ms. Udwin however insisted that has not been personally involved in organising any of the Modi-related protests. Recent news reports have said that she issued a “public appeal” to bring together “hundreds, if not thousands” of protesters in a demonstration outside the Wembley Stadium where Mr. Modi will address a 60,000-strong audience of UK Indians on November 13. “I did not personally put out such a call, but would love to see it happen. I don’t wish to disdain the objectives of those who did. I applaud them,” the filmmaker told The Hindu.
