RAJNEETI JINXED?May 21st, 2010 - 9:06 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
May 21, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Ever since it wrapped up filming, Prakash Jha’s political drama Rajneeti has been attracting a lot of controversy, whether it was for “plagiarizing” KKR”s film title or coming under the radar of the censor board. Now a new controversy has been raised, this time about the star cast disrespecting the National Anthem!
It may face the rap from the censor board or the likes, for reciting the National Anthem in a casual manner. The movie which includes a vast list of stars such as Ajay Devgan, Ranbir Kapoor Naseeruddin Shah, Nana Patekar, Manoj Bajpai and last but not the least Katrina Kaif, will release on June 4th. This political drama is apparently based on “First family of Indian politics” The Gandhi family. The problem was pointed with latest trailer being showcased, where the actors have casual body language and bored looks on their faces. Though Arjun Rampal and Ajay Devgan were respected for their ethics while singing our national Anthem. Many have felt that the actors should have got rid of the bored looks on their face, while shooting such a vital part of the film.
Earlier the controversy ridden film was garnering positive press for Katrina’s skill to master fluent Hindi in just 20 days. With such a balance of both positive and negative press attention, the film is bound to attract lot of viewers, because in tinsel town there is no such thing as good or bad publicity.
With that said and done, let’s just hope this movie releases, it shuns out the bad critic and shuts out the jinx once and for all!
