Morgan Freeman is one of the most famous and iconic actors of our time. He is well known for his signature deep and smooth voice and immensely colorful and successful acting career.
Freeman portrayed Nelson Mandela, who passed away recently, in the 2009 movie “Invictus”. The movie was about the events before, after and during the 1995 Rugby World Cup that was organized in South Africa.
Morgan Freeman’s performance as Nelson Mandela in that movie was probably too good. As it turns out a billboard appeared somewhere in India mourning the recently deceased former president of South Africa that has messages written in Tamil but instead of a picture of Mandela the poster depicts the face of Morgan Freeman.
The scandalous billboard is somewhere in Chennai, South India and it sparked a huge discussion among the social media users.
The actor who is about to play Mandela in the biopic movie “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” is Idris Elba.
