Ram Gopal Varma's Nishabd has received mixed reaction from the audiences. Nishabd is the story of a 60 year old man falling in love with 18 year old girl. Reacting to this concept, Congress in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday has demanded a ban on film.
Congress spokesman Pervez Ahmed Khan explained that the film is against the Indian culture, therefore, the film should be banned. He also wrote a letter to Broadcasting Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunsi where he mentioned that actor Amitabh Bachchan is regarded as a role model in India and this movie will have an adverse impact on the people and the society. The film should therefore be banned in public interest.
