The Shiv Sena has come down heavily on the much-hyped film
Kurbaan starring real life couple Saif Ali Khan and
Kareena Kapoor. It has threatened to ban its screening, objecting
to its poster with the lead pair posing topless. With the makers of
the film not in the mood to relent to their demands, it has to be
seen if they will disturb its screening when it releases this
Friday, November 20.
Criticising the bare back bold poster of the film, the Shiv Sena
offered to send a sari to Kareena to cover up her back, and the
actress hit back by demanding a good one. With the war between the
self proclaimed moral police (Shiv Sena) and the makers of the film
heating up, it is not sure if its screening will be disturbed.
However, Saif has defended the poster, alleging that it"s very
tasteful. He said that they would look into it if it has offended
someone unknowingly though the censor board has passed it. He added
that India being a sensitive country, one controversy or the other
crops up every time a film is about to hit the theatres.
