B-Towners react to Mallika’s statements asking her to leave the country if it depresses her so much, and settle abroad )PS: Raakhee suggests a nudist colony for Ms Sherawat)

Pooja Bhatt It is said that we do not see the world as it is, but as we are. While there are pockets of India that are way more regressive than even Afghanistan, there is another India that is way more progressive than Europe or America. India is too complex a nation to be reduced to a blurb. At the same time it is also a nation that permits everyone to have an opinion, no matter how banal or profound.
Divya Dutta Wonder why she said what she did! Isn’t she undermining all the Indian women achievers who’ve been given great opportunities by this country? She got her fame here. Women in this country are on par with their sisters in any part of the world.
Raakhee Gulzar Poor thing. She tried every trick, yet made no impact. If she says we’re regressive then she must leave, find herself a more suitable place of her choice. Maybe a nudist’s colony?
Amrita Puri The context in which Mallika spoke was ridiculous. She made it sound like she is the only progressive actor in this country. It’s a shame that she was given a platform where she presented such a false and unintelligent point of view.

The film has Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tannishta Chatterjee in the cast. It had premiered at the Busan Film Festival in Korea in November after which VO had espoused that he would promote it. The film has been produced by Mahaveer Jain, Anil Lad and Chirag Shah.
Says Mahavir, “As I know Vivek and after seeing what the film was about he agreed to be a co-producer of the project. He came on board only after the film was complete. At that time he was free and so did not mind being present for the film’s events. But when he started shooting, he told us to relieve him from the project. We now have Imtiaz Ali as presenter of the film.”
When the producers had met Ali and showed him the film, he was delighted with it and felt the movie should reach a maximum number of people, as it’s an entertaining and meaningful cinematic work. He thus came on board to promote and present it.
Says Vivek’s spokesperson, “He is still the producer of Dekh Indian Circus. As he has been busy of late he has not had time. He was earlier shooting for KLPD with Mallika Sherawat. He is presently in Singapore for IIFA Awards and will resume shooting in Rajasthan for Soham More >
