Would you dump your partner if they had racist views? UKIP's leader has split from his partner after she made offensive comments about Meghan Markle. After this, Indian actress and writer Soha Ali Khan talks about her Bollywood career and her new book, "The Perils of Being Moderately Famous". Then Dr Pushpinder Choudhry comes in to talk about this year's UK Asian Film Festival, which features a documentary about the relationship between the South Asian diaspora and Indian cinema. Sexual harassment and gender inequality has become a global issue in the past few months. Author and musician Tanuja Desai Hidier - best known for her book "Born Confused" - and acid attack survivor Monia Singh discuss a new video project, featuring Anoushka Shankar, which reflects on racial and gender equality.
