Arjun Kapoor, Deepika Padukone starrer film Finding Fanny has once again landed into trouble, few days ago censor board had problem with the usage of the word 'virgin' in the movie and now the film has been accused of insulting Karnataka.
While the first problem has been solved with the Central Board
of Film Certification (CBFC) giving green signal towards using the
'virgin' word in the movie, while it is yet to see how the film
team will manage to get itself out of the latter problem. Recently
a making video of the film was released where we see the lead actor
of the film, Arjun Kapoor mouthing the words 'A bloody mental
state', at this point we see a prominent bus stand of Karnataka in the background.
This has caused the film team to be accused of insulting
Karnataka by the state activists, a popular actor from Sandalwood
too has raised this issue on Twitter. The conversation seen in the
trailer is as such:
Arjun Kapoor: We have crossed into another state
Dimple Kapadia: What state?
Arjun Kapoor: A bloody mental state.
Pankaj Kapur: Now the pictures perfect!
So now the activists are demanding this portion to be cut off,
if they wish to release the film in the state. Meanwhile the film
team has issued a statement saying that the so called bus stand
will not be seen in the movie and it was shown only in the making
video. They also said that this dialogue has no reference to this
state or any other state for that matter.
As of now Karanataka activists are demanding an apology from the
team and are also upset that Deepika Padukone, who belongs to this
state has let something like this happen.
How this issue is going to be resolved is yet to be seen.
