Projecting the likes of Rajit Kapoor and Ashish Vidyarthi- the film marking the collaborative venture of India & UAE had to be banned. Following mass furor in Tamil Nadu, the interestingly captivating flick of Sohan Roy was stopped from screening. Consequently, the director planned out a legal recourse to have the ban subsequently lifted.
