Director Subhash Kapoor’s comedy-thriller Guddu Rangeela has been facing threats from religious organisations in north India for featuring a song that has the following lyrics — ‘Kal Raat Mata Ka Mujhe Email Aaya Hai, Mata Ne Mujhko Facebook Pe Bulaya Hai’. The film, which is about two small-time crooks, played by Amit Sadh and Arshad Warsi, has allegedly upset the sentiments of a few religious organisations in North and West parts of the country, said a TOI report.
Apparently, the film’s makers have received several emails and threatening calls asking them to remove the song from the film. The threat calls warn of dire consequences if the film doesn’t remove the song.
In Ludhiana, there were demonstrations held demanding a ban to be put on the film and posters of the film were put on fire, said the report.
