Wake Up Sid wakes up to controversy; Karan Johar apologies to Raj Thackeray
Going by the buzz and the hype that was created over the last few weeks around the film Wake Up Sid, its quite obvious, that its makers left no stone unturned, when it came to the film's promotions. But the makers of the film surely must've not expected the film create controversy on day one itself.
Today, MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) party activists disrupted the screening of the Ranbir-Konkona starrer in some cinema halls in Mumbai and Pune. The reason? Well, they were objecting use of word 'Bombay' instead of 'Mumbai' in the film. Latest reports have it that the film's producer Karan Johar had gone to meet MNS chief Raj Thackeray to sort out the matter and has also apologized for referring 'Mumbai' city as 'Bombay' in the film. He further said that a disclaimer will now be carried in the beginning of the film.
Wake Up Sid stars Ranbir Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma, Anupam Kher and Supriya Pathak and is directed by Ayan Mukerji.
