Sikh community portrayed as very regal, noble in movie ‘No Problem’: Kapoor

Friday, December 10, 2010

MUMBAI - Bollywood actor and producer Anil Kapoor said his upcoming comedy movie ‘No Problem’ portrays the Sikh community as regal and noble.

Kapoor and actor Akshay Khanna interacted with fans and mediapersons to promote the film at an event here on Thursday.

The film courted controversy after Sikh groups protested a sequence in the film.

Kapoor said the matter has been sorted out with Sikh community leaders, and a disclaimer has been added to the film’s credit.

“We have shown the movie to them. In fact, we have complimented the Sikh people in one of our songs. Lots of people are calling me up, and they are very proud. We have shown that the Sikh community is very regal and very noble,” said Kapoor.

“We have a scene in which Sikh people save us from trouble. In the movie only in one scene we have just disguised ourselves as Sikhs; we are not playing characters from this community,” he added.

During the event, actor Akshay Khanna said this flick is a comic roller-coaster ride.

“If you have any problems and if you want to forget your troubles for a few hours, then you should come and watch our movie,” said Khanna.

Besides Kapoor and Khanna, the film stars Sanjay Dutt, Paresh Rawal, Suniel Shetty, Sushmita Sen and Kangana Ranaut.

Directed by Anees Bazmee, the movie has been released worldwide today. By Shaikh Sharik (ANI)
