Meryl Streep, Freida Pinto to Present U.S. Premiere of Banned Indian Rape Documentary — hollywoodreporter.com

Meryl Streep and Freida Pinto will present the U.S. premiere of India's Daughter by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin, which has been banned for telecast in India. The controversial BBC documentary revolves around the horrific 2012 gang rape of a young woman on a bus in Delhi which sparked a national furore and massive street protests.
