CENSOR TROUBLE: Actors Abhay Deol (L) and Arjun Rampal (R) pose during the unveiling of Chakravyuh
THE SONG ‘Tata Birla Ambani Aur Bata’ from director Prakash Jha’s upcoming Indian film Chakravyuh, which ran into trouble with the Censor Board, is not meant to disrespect or hurt anyone, Jha said. The Censor Board passed the song after a disclaimer, which clarifies that the names have been used symbolically and the song does not mean any harm or disrespect to any individual or brand. “We have taken this song from the villages and it is their way of protesting. In general, when we think of industrialists, we think of Tata and Birla. We have no intention to hurt or disrespect anyone. We have also voluntarily inserted a disclaimer about the same,” he said at the movie’s music launch. The movie explores Naxalism. Abhay Deol plays the role of a young rebel while Manoj Bajpai and newcomer Anjali Patil play Maoists. “The story is about two friends - Arjun and Abhay - who end up taking some decisions that later make it tough for them to get out of a particular situation,” he said.
The movie is set to release on October 24.
