“The trick [to avoiding being typecasted] is to plan wisely. I am very particular about what projects I choose to do. What people don’t see is the number of scripts that I get sent, with requests for me to play everything from an Indian spice merchant to a terrorist! If I decide that I am going to play an Indian character, I make sure that I am telling a different story from what I have done before.” – Dev Patel
Do you have any idea what it’s like knowing my real brother and mother spent everyday of their lives looking for me? How everyday my real brother screams my name? Can you imagine the pain they must be in not knowing where I am?
this is a friendly reminder that aladdin should have a middle eastern/arab cast, stop interchanging arabs with pakistani and indian people, we are not the same, as much as i love riz ahmed, dev patel, and avan jogia, they are not arab, therefore can not and should not be casted as aladdin, disney is looking to cast naomi scott as jasmine, which also should not be the case because she is indian, NOT ARAB, the main fault of this is because everyone seems to think it’s ok to have indians or pakistani people take roles in aladdin because they have brown skin, it’s racist and wrong, this is exactly the same case about how asian people are not interchangeable, so please stop fancasting or pushing the idea of having indian and pakistani people playing parts in aladdin
