Mumbai, Aug 3 : Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha,who is busy promoting his forthcoming film “Mulk”, has given many controversial speeches but his film depicts love story between Hindus and Muslims.Produced by Anubhav Sinha and Deepak Mukut, the film is slated for release on August 3.

Clearing the air  regarding controversies attached to the film, Anubhav Sinha  stated ” when trailer of Mulk was released , extremists of the country heavily criticized the film and that there were lots of controversy floating around the film , claiming that the film targets a certain religion. But now critics has positively reacted to the film.”

Sinha was interacting with the media at a local radio station here to promote the movie, along with Taapsee Pannu and Prateik Babbar.

Mulk features Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor, Rajat Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Neena Gupta, Prateik Babbar, Manoj Pahwa and Prachee Shah Pandya in lead roles.

Asked whether he feels relieved now, he said: “I think people who want to get publicity, they target films but I wasn’t bothered with all that because I knew what I have tried to showcase through Mulk.

“I didn’t make this film to criticize anybody or to hurt anybody’s sentiments. I always felt that Mulk is a love story between Hindus and Muslims.”

He further said that films like these can start a dialogue to address the issue. “We don’t make discussions on these issues. Our prejudices are well cemented in our DNA, so if we start a dialogue about it, then I think we will be able to break that glass ceiling.”

Makers of the movie on Wednesday hosted a special screening of the film for film critics and the media in Delhi and Mumbai, and most critics gaven thumps-up to the movie.

Reacting to the initial response to his film, Sinha said: “I am happy with the initial response to our film and I can see that everybody is praising it. We are getting reviews for the film and people are reacting positively to the film. Now, I hope people will go to the theatres and appreciate our film.”

Asked since Mulk showcases harmony between Hindus and Muslims, does he expect tax exemption to the movie, Sinha said: “It will be really good if the film gets tax exemption … because it talks about brotherhood and harmony between Hindus and Muslims so… I hope this film will be made tax-free once it is released.”

Responding to a query whether it was his image-building exercise to make a movie like Mulk, he said: “No. I was making a film and not a certain kind of image. I really liked the story and I felt this kind of story is necessary to reach the audience… Every film and its story has its own syntax and context and that’s how films should be made.”

Mumbai: In a major development, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday said that it has summoned Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preeet Singh for questioning in a drug-related case.

A senior NCB official related to the probe told IANS, “Summons have been issued to Deepika, Sara, Shraddha and Rakul for questioning. “Besides four Bollywood actors, the NCB has also summoned fashion designer Simone Khambatta.” However, the official did not share the date when these actors have been called for questioning.

The drug law enforcement agency has also summoned Deepika’s manager Karishma Prakash for questioning. The development comes in the wake of the investigation into a drug-related case linked to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Sushant was found dead on June 14 at his Bandra flat.

The official said that the actors have been summoned after several alleged chats of them discussing drugs came to the fore during the investigation.

The NCB has registered a case on the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after it found alleged drug chats between Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, house manager Samuel Miranda.

Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sushant’s personal staff Dipesh Sawant along with 16 other accused have been arrested by the NCB in the case so far.

Sara is the daughter of noted actor Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, while Shradhha is the daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor. Deepika is the daughter of the badminton icon Prakash Padukone and is married to Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.

The official, however, denied that it has issued any summons to Dia Mirza. Earlier in the day, the NCB continued questioning Sushant’s talent manager Jaya Saha for the third consecutive day.

Besides Saha, the NCB is also questioning Madhu Mantena Varma, a noted producer, who gave blockbusters such as ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Ghajini’.

According to NCB sources, Varma is being confronted with Saha over alleged chats of them discussing drugs. NCB has also questioned Sushant’s former manager Shruti Modi on a number of occassions.

Besides the NCB, the CBI and the ED are also probing the death case of Sushant.
