An article by Times of India article Edyward, who is the son of India’s former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, has a history of controversial remarks.
His name is used as an alias by people in the film industry, including directors.
“He is a film buff and a vegetarian,” the actor, who plays a character called Mr. Edy in the movie, said in a recent interview with The Hindu.
“I don’t care about meat or any other animal, but if they want to use my name, I won’t object.
I am a vegetarian.
It’s my choice.”
He also called for an end to the “inhumane” and “shameful” practice of using the name “Edwards” in films.
