Protests in Allahabad over Amitabh Bachchan's 'Nishabd'
04th Mar 2007 10.00 IST
Mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan 's hometown, witnessed a mass protest on Friday against the screening of the Hindi movie Nishabd , which focuses on the love of a 60-year-old man (Bachchan) and an 18-year-old girl ( Jiah Khan ).
Protestors raised anti- Bachchan slogans and mangled posters of the movie.
"The release of ‘Nishabd’ on the soil of Prayag can't be tolerated. Through this film, Amitabh Bachchan is propagating western culture in our youth, which is disgusting. We will not let the movie hit the halls. Indeed, Amitabh Bachchan should take a voluntarily retirement from film industry," said Mukund Tiwari, a local legislator.
‘Nishabd’ is said to be based on "Lolita", the 1955 bestseller novel authored by Vladimir Nabokov. It is directed and produced by Ram Gopal Varma and reportedly, exhibits a high voltage sensual drama, much contrary to conventional Indian social norms. Both Varma and Bachchan have denied that the movie is a take off on "Lolita".
The self-proclaimed protectors of Indian ethos demanded a nation-wide ban on the screening of the film, failing which they warned that their protest might be aggravated.
