The depiction of the Bodo community in the Hindi film Tango Charlie is 'perverse', Border Security Force Director General R S Mooshahary said on Sunday.
"The director of the film had asked me to see the movie in New Delhi [ Images ] but what I saw was really bad for the Bodo community as a whole," Mooshahary, himself a Bodo, told reporters at the BSF headquarters in Patgaon near Guwahati.
Mooshahary said the director had no knowledge of the region. "Otherwise, how can you account for the presence of Bodo militants in a place in Manipur as shown in the movie, which is really ridiculous."
The Assam government has already banned the film in the state, saying the film portrayed the Bodo community in bad light.
