The movie is being released on May 5, but it has already generated controversy with its alleged use of white parents.
In the film, Mia and her friends, Mia & Mia, are raised by a white mother and an Asian father.
The film also stars a black actor, Aamir Khan.
“I think it’s great.
I think it is one of the most important movies I have ever seen, I can’t say I was disappointed.
I’m very happy that we are seeing people’s views, I think that’s what we are going for.
It’s an important film,” Khan said in an interview with India Today TV channel.
But, some of the criticism has centred on the white parents’ ethnicity, especially the white mother.
“We have all seen the trailer.
We can’t understand how a white parent could give a child such a difficult upbringing.
It is a shame.
I am sorry for that,” one parent wrote on Facebook.
The film, directed by Aamabhai Ambani, is based on his book.
