Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual.

Ahluwalia, who is also a designer and has appeared in films like “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “The Darjeeling Limited,” was held until everyone else had been boarded before he had his bag searched. He was also swabbed and patted down. When the actor was asked to remove his turban he refused.

“That is something that I would not do in public,” he told the N.Y. Daily News. “That’s akin to asking someone to take off their clothes.”

When he refused he was told that he would have to find another plane. Ahluwalia posted a picture of himself with his plane ticket after being turned away.

This morning in Mexico City I was told I could not board my @aeromexico flight to NYC because of my turban. »
