    Renowned politicians like L.K. Advani and Balasaheb Thackeray's names will be mentioned in the much awaited film based on the 1993 bomb blasts Black Friday. The film which is based on Hussein Zaidi's book has already been through a lot of controversies before its due release.

    The film unfolds the true story about the blasts but the director Anurag Kashyap had to keep in mind some of its consequences of having such a scene, and so he came up with an idea. Like for instance, there is a scene in the film where Pavan Malhotra who plays Tiger Memon talks to his aides about destabilizing India for which Kashyap shot two separate scenes.

    In the first one there is a hint about the assassination of Advani and Thackeray which is ruled out because they think that the two politicians would get more popularity and after their death people would build their statues and immortalise them. Finally they decide on serial bomb blasts in Mumbai which is the centre of economy in India.

    The director very much wanted the two names (Advani and Thackeray) in the film. So shooting two scenes did made sense, if there would be a problem they could switch the scenes. The film Black Friday was held up for a couple of years but will finally release on February 9.
