Choreographer-turned-actor-turned director Prabhudeva is in trouble with the Hindu Makkal Katchi regarding his upcoming film "Ramaiya Vastavaiya". The Hindi film has been directed by Prabhudeva, and stars Girish Kumar opposite Shruti Haasan.
The film is a remake of Prabhdeva’s directorial debut, the 2005 Telugu film "Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana" starring Trisha and Siddharth. The film was later remade in Tamil as "Something Something…Unakkum Enakkum".
The trouble is because Prabhudeva has featured actress Jacqueline Fernandez in the film. The actress and model is from Sri Lanka, and the HMK are irked that she is involved in the film when her country has allegedly been involved in human rights violations and war crimes.
Should politics and cinema mix?
