LOST star Naveen Andrews has blasted British TV for degrading Indian people.

The 36-year-old actor hates popular BBC comedy THE KUMARS - which features a fictional Asian family living in north London who host a chat show from their living room - for resorting to stereotypes in its depiction of a dull story-telling father and mother who is desperately trying to marry off her unmarried adult son.

Andrews says, "What's that wog show? The Kumars - is that the way people want to see Indians, pretending that they're nothing?

"I find that incredibly offensive."
