Production house & authorities state shooting permitted, nothing objectionable
Shooting of the movie Haseen Dilruba, which casts Taapsee Pannu and Vikrant Messi began recently in Haridwar. However, it has elicited opposition from some persons here. The Hindu Jagran Manch has alleged that the film title does not match the sacred spirit of Haridwar.
On Monday, a delegation of the Hindu Jagran Manch met city magistrate Jagdish Lal and submitted a memorandum asking that the shooting of the film be stopped in Haridwar. The Hindu Jagran Manch district president Manish Chauhan told this correspondent that the the film title and poster is vulgar. The production house is stating that the movie is a murder mystery. If it is so, the movie can be shot elsewhere too out of Haridwar. Chauhan says that the group had submitted a memorandum to the city magistrate, adding that if the authorities do not take any action then the Hindu Jagran Manch will take some action.
According to Atul Painuli, director of the Impression Line Production, the movie Haseen Dilruba is a murder mystery. There is no vulgarity in the movie. The chief minister and State Government are encouraging shooting of films in the state. He further said that the government had officially allowed the production house to shoot the movie in the state. Stating that there is nothing illegal or objectionable in shooting the movie here, he said that such a protest will send the wrong kind of message to the film industry in Mumbai. One film project provides employment to many and results in income generation for the locals too, he added.
Meanwhile, the superintendent of police (City) Kamlesh Upadhyay said that if the production house has valid permission to shoot the movie, there is not point in trying to stop the same. If anyone has any objections, one should express the same through the valid official process. No one will be allowed to disturb law and order on this issue, she stressed.
The city magistrate Jagdish Lal told this correspondent that permission for filming the movie here had been granted from the state government level. The local administration can only maintain the law and order while ensuring that the film shooting gets conducted properly, he added.
