India was once owned by Great Britain, remember. While most people think of the stereotypical Indian look or sound when they think of people from India, it is not uncommon to find people that look and sound completely British with Indian sounding names. Just because Benedict Cumberbatch is not what you expected, doesn’t mean that he isn’t right for the role.
Now, I haven’t seen the new Star Trek movie yet, so I can’t say how good he was or wasn’t in it, but don’t say he didn’t belong in the role because of the way he looks. It’s just as bad as saying someone didn’t get the role because they weren’t white. He is a fine actor, and probably got the role because he was the best for it. Or because he is extremely popular and they wanted to get fans of him to go see the movie.
This goes in the top 20 of the most ridiculous excuses for the whitewashing of Khan.
Translation: accept the colonilaization of your country and the eraure of PoCs in media as the norm.
OP, you stink of butt juice.
and…ok so yeah some indian people are white…thats all fine and good. but benadict cumbatch isnt…if your argument is that white indian people exist, thats all fine and good…if the person who was playing him was infact a white indian….cumbatch is white and british…your argument is flawed.
