While the box office has not really warmed up to Anubhav Sinha's latest release Warning, we hear that the director's good friend Sudhir Mishra too is quite unhappy with the film

Insiders say that Sudhir feels the content of the film will turn people off from exploring the deep oceans and will make swimmers fear sharks.

Says our source, “Although Sudhirbhai appreciated the efforts of his friend in making the film, he doesn’t think it’s a responsible film when it comes to spreading positive messages about saving the environment. However, the special effects in the film have been loved by the audiences.”

One wonders then perhaps if the filmmaker has seen some of Hollywood’s greatest hits, all shot far out in the sea, including Steven Spielberg’s Jaws.

On his part, Sudhir says, “People will unnecessarily get scared of an animal that in itself faces danger from humanity. Sharks are scary yes, but we should understand that they are not habitual predators.”

In his defence, Anubhav says, “I think he is being very sensitive about the matter and sharks have known to harm people too. It’s just a story and this isn’t a sweeping statement on sharks.”
