Dev Anand disapproves of protest

Thursday, May 25, 2006 

Nagpur (UNI): Evergreen actor Dev Anand said it would be unjust if cine star Aamir Khan's new movie Fanaa was prevented from being screened in Gujarat by protestors. Interacting with media persons here, Dev Anand said, ''I do not know what is the reason behind the protest in that state when the film is being released across India Friday. But, I disapprove of the protest.'' Dev Anand, who was recently presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by ''Screen'', was in the city to attend his felicitation organised by the Lokmat group of newspapers and the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC).

Aamir Khan, who plays a lead role in the film with Kajol, has been facing flak in Gujarat ever since he extended his support to Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) leader Medha Patkar last April. The octogenarian actor, while commenting on the country's progress, said India has made a tremendous progress during the last 50 years but a lot more was needed to be done. To a question on the present trend in romantic films, he said there was nothing wrong with it. ''I have also produced many romantic flms which were liked by the people.'' To another question, he quipped, ''I have no regrets in life which has been blessed by go. People have liked my acting.''
