The movie ‘The Dirty Picture’ has been in midst of controversies ever since it was announced. Be its bold content, title, posters or promos it has managed to cause a buzz.

The newest controversy to surround the movie is that Rajinikanth’s fans want a few ‘objectionable’ scenes removed from the movie as they have drawn parallels to Naseeruddin Shah’s character in the movie and Rajinikanth.

It’s a well known fact that Naseeruddin Shah plays a role of a Tamil super star who lusts after ‘Silk Smitha’ played by Vidya Balan. Rajinikanth fans think that Naseeruddin Shah’s character is inspired by Rajinikanth as the super star had worked with Silk Smitha in his movies and some item numbers.

But the makers of the movie have denied any such inspirations. They have pointed out that while Naseeruddin Shah plays an old and ageing superstar, Rajinikanth in 80’s was young and new.

The fans of Rajinikanth are adamant about this and have threatened the makers of the movie with dire consequences if their super star Rajinikanth is showed in bad light.
