Raajneeti, by Prakash Jha, has run into many controversies so far. In its early phase, Nana Patekar walked out of the project and stopped shooting for the film. Then it faced allegations by a script writer Yogendra Konkar, who stated that the script of the movie is similar to a script written by him.
The controversy saga continued as some of the Congress Party workers accused that the role portrayed by Katrina Kaif in Raajneeti, is based on their leader Sonia Gandhi and the film tries to defame her.
However, after all these problems, the flick has now got an 'all clear' signal from the Bombay High Court against the cases of script-lifting and defaming Congress leader Sonia Gandhi. The movie starring Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Rampal, Nana Patekar, Ajay Devgn et al, is finally set to release without any further delay (hopefully) on June 4.
The film has also received the U/A certificate after cutting down the lovemaking scene between Katrina and Arjun and deleting the beeped words.
But now, once again, the film has managed to be the hub of media attention. We have confirmed reports of Nana Patekar giving Raajneeti a cold shoulder. The actor seems to be sticking to his words of not being a part of the movie or attending its promos or events or even watching the movie. On the other hand, Prakash Jha is in no mood to settle issues with Nana.
After all the controversies faced by the makers of Raajneeti, one wonders how this will affect the movie!
