Footnote taken from The Trouble With Malaysia, a Brian Yap essay from the book New Malaysian Essays 1
On an April 2006 episode of the RTM1 programme Fenomena Seni, Yasmin Ahmad's film was said to be contaminating our culture.
One panelist, a film producer by the name of Raja Azmi, said tthere was no need to make films featuring interracial relationships, because, "We already know that this is a multiracial country, and it's been shown before in films. So there's no need to make another film like that.
