Mumbai: Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn on Thursday
said that Prakash Jha`s film `Aarakshan`, which is facing
protests for allegedly being anti-reservation, has nothing
objectionable in it.
The promos of the actor`s upcoming film `Rascals` is
slated to be released alongwith `Aarakshan` tomorrow, but,
despite the latter film being banned in three states already,
Devgn is hopeful people will realise there is nothing
controversial once they watch it.
"I think there is nothing objectionable in the film. When
people see it, they will realise that there is nothing
controversial," Devgn said when asked if the prospects of
`Rascals` would be affected as several theatres across the
country may not screen `Aarakshan`.
Devgn has earlier worked with Jha in `Gangajal` and
Amitabh Bachchan, who is the lead star on `Aarakshan`,
launched the promo of `Rascals` today. Directed by David
Dhawan, the film stars Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Kangana Ranaut and
When a question was posed to Dutt as to whether protests
against `Aarakshan` would affect promotion of `Rascals`, he
refused to reply and asked producers Sanjay Ahluwalia and
Vinay Choksi to answer instead.
