May 6, 2013 | By

According to certain media reports the screening of Bollywood release was cancelled at several theatres in the state of Punjab. Screening of John Abraham’s “Shootout at Wadala” has reportedly been cancelled at Ludhiana, Moga, Jalandhar, Bathinda, Amritsar and Moga on May 06, 2013 after an organization named “Bhartiya Valmiki Dharam Samaj” raised objections on two particular dialogues in the movie .

According to Indian Express (IE) Laxman Dravid, National Director of the BVDS said: “We have already sent legal notices to producer of the film, Ekta Kapoor, and director Sanjay Gupta. They should think twice before saying anything against Valmikiji. These dialogues could have serious repercussions in whole nation”.

As per reprots there are two dialogues in the movie which have allegedly offended the community.

“In one dialogue, an actor has used wrong language for Valmikiji by saying har chor valmiki nahi hota and in other dialogue John Abraham says Eklavya ne angutha dia tha, main poora haath de dunga. Once these are censored, we have no objection to the movie,” Deepak Hans, President of Dr Ambedkar Ekta Mission reportedly said.

“Sources said shows were cancelled on orders of Police Commissioner Ishwar Singh and DC Rahul Tewari”, IE has reported.
