         Tags: Malayalees aren’t racists: Sudani clarifies
 

Earlier, ‘Sudani from Nigeria’ star Samuel Robinson had made a Facebook post saying that the producers of the movie showed racial discrimination against him and was paid less.

However, many took it in the wrong sense and thought he was addressing Malayalees in general as racists and hence started abusing him on Facebook.

Well, the actor has come up with yet another post to clarify his earlier statement.

Let’s take a look at his post:

I have received a lot of negative comments on my previous statement.

I was paid far less than the Malayalam newcomers are normally paid, this is factual. I accepted this amount; less than my usual quote in Nigeria because I was under the impression that it was a very small budget independent movie. Several citations off the internet confirm that this movie was in fact moderately budgeted.

I have wholeheartedly supported the promotion of the movie in expectation of a positive financial compensation before returning to Nigeria as was promised.

The movie has already nearly doubled its budget at the box office in just 7 days due to the successful promotions. I do not think that Kerala people are racist as I experienced no such racist treatment from the general Kerala public. I very much enjoyed my stay in Kerala, the culture, the Biryani and all.

I am offended and feel that it is unfair that I should have this much unexpected scrutiny on my activity and general life without the cushion of decent financial payments which could have easily been afforded by the producers.

I consider this particular treatment to be racial discrimination because even the least experienced Indian new comer in Malayalam industry would be paid considerably more than what I was, which would go a long way to cushion the sudden and intense popularity precipitated by a big budget movie's publicity.

I Love You Kerala and I very much appreciate your continued support. https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v9/f6c/1/16/2764.png

Samuel Abiola Robinson.
