Dedh Ishqiya

The premier of Madhuri Dixit starrer Dedh Ishqiya  that was to be held in the ‘city of nawabs’ Lucnow has been cancelled. It was to be held in a Multiplex at Gomtinagar with the Cheif Minster and his family attending it. The star cast and director Abhishek Chaubey were informed of the cancellation of the program me when they were about to board a flight at Mumbai for Lucknow. The red-faced crew aborted the flight and cancelled their travel plans thereafter.


As per sources, the chief minister, annoyed by the adverse publicity of the Bollywood Nite at the Saifai Mahotsava where Salman Khan and Madhuri participated, decided not to attend the premiere. The negative publicity following the performance of Madhuri at Saifai forced the state government to cancel the film’s premiere.

The Saifai Mahotasav has invited rebuke from the media and opposition parties, as they accused the Samajwadi Party (SP) government of being insensitive to the plight of the riot survivors of Muzaffarnagar and busying itself in merry making.
