Fanaa - Controversy

I am sure that everybody is following the controversy that Fanaa is getting into even on the day of its release. Actually, make that controversies.

The movie is being released today worldwide. It was already in a controversy with regards to its release in the multiplexes and the news that have come today is that the producers of Fanaa Yash Raj Films have reached a settlment with the multiplexes and except a couple of multiplexes, Fanaa would be released everywhere in single screen theatres as well as multiplexes.

Another controversy that has been raging since last couple of days is Aamir's outburst against the Gujarat government in favour of Narmada Bachao Aandolan. Apparently, Fanaa has been banned in Gujarat. There are some youth leaders in Gujarat who have stated that they would not permit the movie to be released in Gujarat. So much so that even the Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh has come out in support of Aamir Khan and stated that every citizen of India must have the freedom of speech that has been granted by the Constitution of India.

Let's see how these controversies affect the box office collections of Fanaa as well as Aamir Khan's standing as a film star and as the newest crusader in favour of Narmada Bachao Aandolan.

Will keep you guys posted on the developments.
