We had told you last year itself that Rajkumar Santoshi's Ajay Devgan-Vidya Balan starrer, Halla Bol, was based on the life of 'nukkad natak' pioneer, the late Safdar Hashmi. Later on we also disclosed that model Jessica Lal's murder angle was also a part of the movie.
However, a recent story doing the rounds is that Aamir Khan's Narmada controversy (around the release of Fanaa) was also a part of the proceedings. But that is not the case at all. The producer of Halla Bol, Abdol Samee Siddiqui, has categorically denied the existence of Aamir's Gujarat controversy track in the movie. He further added that the script of Halla Bol, by Rajkumar Santoshi, was totally original and there were no inspirations from Aamir's life.
Maybe this canard surfaced because Ajay Devgan plays the role of a righteous kind of superstar, who fights against the system.
