New Delhi: Director Ram Gopal Varma’s controversy-ridden Nishabd has crash-landed into yet another row and this time it’s the Congress which is playing spoilt sport.

The Congress in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday demanded a ban on Varma’s latest release in which superstar Amitabh Bachchan romances Jiah Khan, who is more than 40 years younger to him.

Congress Spokesman Pervez Ahmed Khan told PTI that the film is against Indian culture and the screening should be banned immediately.

In a letter to Information and Broadcasting Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunsi, Khan said Bachchan is regarded as a role model in India and the film's screening will have an adverse impact on the people and the society.

“It would be in people's interest if the screening of the film is banned immediately," he said in the letter.
Gosh!! What a perverse idea!! Imagine all those poor impressionable 55-year olds who have a poor grip on reality and decide that since Amitabh can get turned on by the sight of a young girl, they can too!! I mean, they look up to him, right? And he's doing something horrible on screen, isn't he? I mean, remember the string of obsessive boyfriends that cropped up saying "Kkkkkirran" ? And that was just SRK. What could AB baby do? Dear Lord Almighty!!! Will someone please think of the 55 year olds? Or the 20 and 30 year olds who will become dirty old men of sorts in 30 years time, their even more impressionable minds scarred and perverted through this awful idea. Hai Ram, this is truly Kaliyug!!!
