Billu Barber | Movie Stills |
Shahrukh Khan | Lara Dutta | Billu Song
Just days ahead of its release Shahrukh Khan's Billu
Barber has run into a controversy. The Salon and Beauty
Parlour associations are up in arms against the movie's title which
uses the word 'barber' which they say is objectionable. Red
Chillies Entertainment Ltd had in fact tied up with about 500
barbers across Mumbai to promote the movie and displayed the movie
posters in their shops.
In a last minute attempt to appease the barbers Shahrukh has
decided to drop the word 'barber' from the title in the pre-release
promotional campaigns. The actor said it was too late to change
title of the movie but he doesn't want to hurt the sentiments of
the barbers. The movie hits the theatres on February 13 and stars
Irrfan Khan and Lara Dutta in the lead.
