Going by the buzz and the hype that was created over the last few
weeks around the film Wake Up Sid, it's quite obvious,
that its makers left no stone unturned, when it came to the film's
promotions. But the makers of the film surely must've not expected
the film create controversy on day one itself.

disrupted the screening of the Ranbir-Konkona starrer in some
cinema halls in Mumbai and Pune. The reason? Well, they were
objecting the use of word 'Bombay' instead of 'Mumbai' in the
Latest reports have it that the film's producer Karan Johar had
gone to meet MNS chief Raj Thackeray to sort out the matter and has
also apologized for referring 'Mumbai' city as 'Bombay' in the
film. He further said that a disclaimer will now be carried in the
beginning of the film.
Wake Up Sid stars Ranbir Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma,
Anupam Kher and Supriya Pathak and is directed by Ayan Mukerji.
