No screening in Punjab
After last-minute clearance from the appellate tribunal, multiplex and cinema owners in the region have decided not to screen the controversial film ‘Messenger of God’ MSG.
RV Sharma, manager of a multiplex here, said, “We have been receiving threats from certain radical groups on Whatsapp. We cannot endanger the lives of our staff and visitors and also the expensive infrastructure of our theatres for a movie. We have all unanimously decided not to screen the movie. No cinema hall has scheduled the film for the week. We have consulted members of the Northern India Motion Pictures Association, who are of the same view”. –Deepkamal Kaur/TNS
