The management claimed that people in ‘dhoti’ and ‘lungi’ were not allowed inside the mall. He was allowed only after he spoke in impeccable English. The man in dhoti is Kolkata-based film maker Ashish Avikunthak.

The incident triggered widespread criticism from people. Kolkata-based actress, Debaleena Sen, shared photographs and videos of the incident and mentioned that when the man approached the management, she was asked not to film it.



Last month, a Khasi woman was denied entry into Delhi Golf Club because she was wearing the state attire. Such incidents are on a rise as several malls and restaurants have a strange customs of not allowing Indian attires.

And this is not the first time such an incident happened in Kolkata. In 2016, a woman was denied permission to eat at an upmarket restaurant because she had her driver accompanying her.

However, the restaurant denied her permission simply on the grounds that she was accompanied by her driver and the man was not properly dressed.
