Films in Bollywood have always been at the receiving end of both, bouquets as well as the brickbats. On the same thought, if you thought that the recently released comic caper Golmaal 3 (aka G-3) was at the receiving end of bouquets for its performances as well as its funny one liners, well, it seems that it's the time for the film to be receiving the brickbats.
Those who have seen the film will know that Shreyas Talpade plays the role of a stammering man. Even though the cinegoers have loved his stammered performance on screen, there is a controversy that has taken birth over his character. The Indian Stammering Association (TISA), based out of Dehradun, felt that Shreyas' character in Golmaal 3 mocks people who stammer. That's why they have slammed the film's makers with a lawsuit.
TISA not only found the character played by Shreyas pretty objectionable, but also the fact that his character was always at the receiving end of jokes and ridicules by his other characters in the film. TISA has now sent a legal notice to the producers asking them to delete all the scenes where the character stammers and respond to it before a December 14 deadline."
While the spokesperson of Shri Ashtavinayak Cinevision said that their legal department is looking into it, Shreyas feels that the people should look at it in a positive way, as the character he played is the hero of the film and that one should not make an issue out of it.
We'll let the audiences decide that. What say readers?
