Anupam Sharma's film 'UnIndian' - starring former Australian cricketer Brett Lee - has received mostly positive reviews from both critics and audiences in India.
‘UnIndian’ – starring former Australian cricketer Brett Lee has opened on screens across India.
Brett Lee is popular on the subcontinent where he's made a lucrative post-cricket career endorsing different companies.
But Brett Lee has also promoted a company that's accused of ripping off millions of poor Indians.
In 2010, Brett Lee endorsed an Indian infrastructure group – Pearls Group.
It turned out that this company and his owner – Nirmal Singh Bhangoo has been accused of fleecing 50 mn Indian investors to the tune of $10 bn.
As per a report in news.com.au, Lee’s former manager – Neil Maxwell has denied being aware about Bhangoo’s money-laundering and fraudulent activities.
‘UnIndian’ earned more than Rs 10 crore on the box office this weekend.
