Amitabh Bachchan is disappointed that the UP Government has canceled the ‘Aarakshan’ promotional event in Lucknow in the last minute.
Amitabh Bachchan along with the Aarakshan team had planned to go to Lucknow today, where they were to interact with the students. But because of few political parties protesting against the subject of the movie, UP government withdrew its permission yesterday.
“And now the bad news... our Lucknow trip cancelled because the UP administration withdraws all permission to conduct promo. The administration does not allow us to enter the city...unofficial reports by police say they have instructions to arrest us if we do," Amitabh Bachchan tweeted.
Amitabh Bachchan is puzzled with the fact that a promotional event of a movie can create a political stir.
“Feel disappointed that we are not allowed to promote film in UP Lucknow... admin feels will excite and cause law and order problem. They say it is a sensitive subject and do not want us to enter the city even...without even seeing the film, duly Censored ?? Strange (sic)," he said.
"But we must follow the law of the land... and the principles that our Constitution is based on... will go straight to Delhi now !!," he added.
