Film Aarakshan has been getting into one or the other
controversies from the very first day of its trailer release. The
film has gathered a lot of opposition, the last one being Mayawati
Government putting a ban on the release of the film in Uttar
Pradesh for two months. Following the foot steps of the UP
government, Punjab government has also imposed a ban on the
screening of Aarakshan in Punjab.
While there are not much details given out, it is known that the
ban will be imposed until the state screening committee previews
the film Aarakshan. The film has gathered a lot of
opposition in the political sphere for people alleging that the
film is anti-dalit and goes against the reservation quota in the
Aarakshan, a Prakash Jha film stars actors Amitabh
Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Prateik Babbar and Manoj
Bajpayee in the leading roles. The film is slated for this coming
Friday release, 12th August, 2011.
