Naseeruddin Shah and Paresh Rawal starring in the satirical comedy Dharam Sankat Mein has been embroiled in a bit of a controversy.
Naseer, who will be seen as a guru of a spiritual organisation in the film says no religion or group will find anything objectionable in the film as ‘whatever is shown in it is factual and correct’. The film, talks about the journey of a Hindu man who finds out about his adopted past involving a Muslim biological parenthood.
However, even before the release, a poster of the film has caused much ruckus. In one of the posters in the film, Annu Kapoor was dressed in a cap that resembled a Muslim cap or a ‘taqiyah’. A certain section of the Muslim community took offence to it and sent a letter to IMPAA (Indian Motion Picture Producer’s Association) that read that their cap should not be used in the poster. The makers prompty changed the cap as they didn’t want any more controversy sorrounding the film, until it released.
