The BBC confuses one Harry Potter twin for another
Parvati and Padma Patil are twins who don't look at all alike in the Harry Potter movies. That hasn't stopped the BBC from getting them mixed up.
Afshan Azad, who plays Padma Patil (the girl on the right in the picture), was reportedly threatened by her father and assaulted by her brother (for reasons unknown but time will tell). In its story, the BBC carries a picture of Shefali Chowdhury, who plays Parvati. This is worse than Indian newspapers mixing up the two Ashleys.
