Congratulating Sunak, Shekhar Kapur shares his experience with racism

Congratulating the new prime minister, Kapoor took to his Twitter and shared a note saying: “When I first went to the UK as a student, Indians were most likely seen sweeping the floors at Heathrow. Or ran corner shops.”

He recalled how he was subjected to racial discrimination by his own friends and was beaten up just because he went out with a white woman.

“My friends randomly called me Abdul and I was beaten up because I dared to go out with a white girl,” Kapur wrote. He studied chartered accountancy in the UK, where he worked for several years in the 1970 as a chartered accountant and management consultant.

Expressing his gratitude to Sunak, Kapur said his elevation was a pivotal part of a global shift. “Thank you #RishiSunak, you are part of a huge global shift,” Kapur wrote.
