Rohan Sippy's much awaited film Chandni Chowk to China will surely go down as one film that won't be forgotten for a long time to come, courtesy the mega marketing blitzkrieg that left practically no space untouched. At the same time, one also feels bad for the kind of ('unintentional' and 'uncalled-for') controversy that it got itself embroiled into, which provoked the country of Nepal to lay a ban on the film. For the uninitiated, the controversy started due to a dialogue in the film which claimed that the Lord Buddha was born in India, contrary to what history indicates.
That explains the reason, why the ace director Rohan Sippy has gone all out to apologise for the same by clarifying "In one scene of Chandni Chowk to China, it has been mentioned that 'Buddha' was born in India, a statement that has been deemed false in Nepal. It was never our intention to hurt the sentiments of the people of Nepal, or anyone else for that matter. We would like to unconditionally apologize for any offence caused due to our error."
Hope things will settle down for the best for the film as well as the film makers.
