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.
canard surfaced because Ajay Devgan plays the role of a righteous
kind of superstar, who fights against the system.
