Indian Government Assures Filmmakers

The Indian government attempted to assure the nation's filmmakers on Thursday that the arrest of a prominent Bollywood investor because of alleged ties to organized crime represented an isolated case and not part of a larger crackdown on the film industry. The Times of India commented that the government was trying to "avert any panic about a concerted action against film financiers."
