Post special screening, Bhujbal objects to scenes in `Aarakshan`
Mumbai: Senior Maharashtra minister and OBC leader Chaggan Bhujbal has expressed objection to certain scenes and dialogues in Prakash Jha`s upcoming film `Aarakshan`.
Some scenes and dialogues in the film are objectionable and the film can be released after deleting them," Bhujbal said after a special screening of the film was arranged by the director here last night.
A final decision on the issue would be announced today after discussing it with leaders of other parties, he said.
Maharashtra minister Shivajirao Moghe and Varsha Gaikwad were present at the screening held in a South Mumbai theatre.
The film, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Deepika Padukone and Prateik Babbar among others in pivotal roles, has kicked up a controversy for its alleged anti-reservation stand. It is set to hit the screens this Friday.
Bombay High Court has already cleared the release of the movie, rejecting a demand for the special screening before its release.
