Bollywood actress Kajol’s sister Tanishaa Mukerji alleges that she faced racism in New York on her recent visit to the city. 

In New York to attend the CRY America charity gala dinner, Tanishaa was partying with her friends at the Jane hotel club when this incident took place. 

Clueless as to why this happened, Tanishaa believes that she was very polite and did not do anything to call for this hate. Reportedly, an African-American employee of the club said that they looked as if they were fresh off the boat and couldn't speak English. 

Tanishaa even made a Twitter video that ended briefly after she was apparently not allowed to continue with the stream. Calling it a traumatic experience, Tanishaa complained that no one from the hotel authorities came forward to help her and her friends.

Many users then replied to Tanishaa and some even pointed out their horrific stories of harassment and abuse by the hotel staff.
