Click here to read the review of Fanaa on this blog.
The previous chief minister of Kashmir had begged bollywood to shoot in the ‘locales’ of Kashmir. His request was bluntly rejected and instead he was asked a few ‘unanswerable’ questions. Even though he was unbale to answer the questions, he did get a lot of publicity, and so did his daughter when she ‘wished’ for a Mc Donald’s in Kashmir. It is reported that she bugged her father a lot about it.
Truth is served in small bites in Kashmir.
Even though our government claims to be doing all it can to promote tourism in Kashmir, the yield is not substantial.
Fanaa is a movie based on Kashmir. It was not shot in Kashmir. It would have been but the crew was not given permission by the government as has happened in the past.
“There was a bomb blast when we were there and there were rumours that we could be attacked. I wanted Kashmir to be a part of my script but it was just too difficult to get permission from the concerned authorities,” he rues.
Our government wants us to believe in ‘lies’ and lies are served hot in Kashmir.
