`Finding Fanny` trailer upsets Kannada organisations

New Delhi: The film `Finding Fanny` seems to have courted trouble yet again, just days ahead of its release.

It has come to light that it has upset a few Kannada representatives.

As per reports, dozens of people took to the streets of Banglore to protest against a particular scene in the movie starring Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor besides several others.

A scene from the trailer of the movie has apparently hurt the sentiments of the Kannada protesters.

Arjun who comes out of a blue car parked in front of a bus stop has a board with Chamundinagara bus nildana (Chamundinagara bus stop) written in Kannada. He then rolls up his eyes and looks up in the sky and shouts, "A bloody mental state". As if this was not enough to upset them, he then goes on to show his anger by banging his fist on the bonnet of the car.

This particular delivery of action and dialogue has angered the protesters who feel that it draws a bad picture of Karnataka.

Reports suggest that well-known Kannada activists Vatal Nagaraj of Vatal Paksha and Sa Ra Govindu of Akhila Karnataka Dr Rajkumar Abhimanigala Sangha, demanded the deletion of the scene from the trailer as well as from the movie.

Directed by Homi Adjania `Finding Fanny` also stars Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapur and Naseeruddin Shah besides Arjun and Deepika. The film is slated to hit the theatres on September 12, 2014.
