On 1st March , Shiv Sena activists reportedly halted shotting of Ajay Devgn’s ‘ Tez’ on grounds that foriegners were included for some roles.Foreigners who work in Bollywood are under different associations.Well, they were being convinced somehow and shooting started therafter.
Similarly, on 3rd March Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists halted shooting of Brad Pitt starrer movie ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ a movie on Osama. The crew came to Chandigarh to shoot. They wanted to represent Abbottabad on the screen, the city of Pakistan where Osama was killed, hence Chandigarh was chosen. This demanded some Shops addressed with Urdu Hoardings and some Pakistani flag being hoisted around the area to give it Abbottabad look. VHP activists protested this.
What is so patriotic about these acts? Is Bollywood the only source of earning for Marathi Manus that foreigners be objected ? Why always Bollywood ? Is it not because it will make Headlines ? Why do activists portray patriotism, by halting shootings and disallowing Pakistani flags to be hoisted for the same ? Who are they impressing ? And how does these meaningless shooting halts help the common man, ‘ AAM ADMI’ ? The only thing it does is it brings a smile on our face when we read or watch such Parishads And Senas halting shootings, thowing chairs and pelting stones, for no reasons and just to come in limlight. Should we thank them for making us giggle on their acts? Interestingly, when MNS attacks the North Indians , no VHP or Bajrang Dal activists utter a single word against this. Hope, the Senas and Parishads start understanding that at least Urban India is no more a fool and they do not buy these stunts anymore. Better start helpingt the common man- AAM ADMI, for real. Else, who minds smiling on funny shooting halts and baseless road blocks ?
