Ten­sion around Bin Laden film

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

When Kathryn Bigelow set out to make a film on the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, she prob­a­bly ex­pected all kinds of con­tro­versy. Sure enough, Hindu rad­i­cals are ob­ject­ing to Bigelow’s decision to shoot scenes set in Pak­istan on In­dian soil.

“They have made Chandi­garh like Pak­istan, as if it is Pak­istan,” Vi­jay Bhard­waj, a leader of the Vishva Hindu Parishad body, said of Bigelow’s decision to shoot in that city. “We strongly op­pose this and we will not let them put Pak­istani flags here and we will not let them shoot for the film.”
