They say no publicity is bad publicity. The much-hyped film Kurbaan starring real life couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor is in the limelight again after the Shiv Sena objected to its poster with the pair posing topless. But this new controversy could be a blessing in disguise.
Nobody talked about the poster of Kurbaan when it was released a few weeks ago though many must have peeped deeper into it if the couple has really posed topless. With its release date drawing near, one party has finally released that Kareena"s bare back is too much to take. And that party happens to be Shiv Sena again.
The self proclaimed moral police (Shiv Sena) has offered to send a sari to Kareena to cover up her bare back. The war didn"t stop there, as the actress has demanded a good sari if they are to send one. In its quest to be in the news, the Shiv Sena has made sure that the news of Kareena"s backless Kurbaan poster reaches every nook and corner of the country and even abroad.
However, Saif has spoken out on his girlfriend"s behalf and defended the poster, alleging that it"s very tasteful. He said that they would look into it if it has offended someone unknowingly though the censor board has passed it. He added that India being a sensitive country, one controversy or the other crops up every time a film is about to hit the theatres.
Let"s wait and watch what the new controversy created by the Shiv Sena will lead to.
