Komal Nahta, film critic, answers the Aarakshan FAQ...

Where's the film releasing?
Everywhere except UP and Punjab. And in Punjab, a special committee will decide today evening whether the film will release in the state or not.

Is the film releasing in Pune, Mumbai?
Yes, the theatre owners have got permission to screen the film.

Why the UP ban?
Mayawati government thinks there would be a law and order problem if they release the film in the state.

What's your take on the entire controversy?
It's politically motivated and brainless with no application of mind. When Censor Board has cleared it, why should anybody have problem with this.
