Stay on release of 'Shanghai'?
A petition was filed on Monday in the Delhi High Court for an interim stay on the June 8 release of upcoming Bollywood film 'Shanghai' until its controversial song Bharat Mata Ki Jai was deleted
'Shanghai', featuring Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi and Kalki Koechlin in prominent roles, focusses on politics and corruption. The film is directed by Dibakar Banerjee, who has earlier helmed projects like 'Khosla Ka Ghosla', 'Oye Lucky Lucky Oye' and 'Love Sex Aur Dhokha'.
The director feels 'Shanghai', an Indian adaptation of Greek author Vassilis Vassilikos' famous novel Z, is his most radical work so far. The four leads, Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi, Prasenjit and Kalki, represent the four different classes of the society.
