Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah has denied news reports about his complaint against Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider, saying he had not even watched the movie yet.





Reacting sharply to a news report carried by a news portal that said the chief minister had complained about the depiction of Kashmir in the Shahid Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor-starrer, Omar wrote on Twitter, "So this website has to be awarded for the most amazing work of fiction I have seen in a very long time."



Omar Abdullah has also demanded the news be withdrawn with a correction. "So where oneindia.in heard that I had seen the movie and proceeded to complain to Vishal about it I will never know. I expect a retraction", he tweeted.
