India: Film makers threatened to remove song from film
The makers of the film ‘Guddu Rangeela’ have reportedly been threatened by religious groups that if they don’t remove the song ‘Mata Ka Email’ from their film, they risk facing “dire consequences”, including disruptions at the theatres.
In Ludhiana, there has been demonstrations demanding a ban to be put on the film, and posters of the film were put on fire, wrote India Times.
Talking to India Times about the threats, director of the film, Subhash Kapoor, said, “I am very suprised. I think it is unfair. Guddu Rangeela is not a religious film. It’s a masala entertainer with a message. There is nothing in the film that can hurt anybody’s religious sentiments.”
