A Hindu radical group sought ban on Bollywood movie 'Total Siyapaa' allegedly for its "anti-national" content. Directed by E Niwas, 'Total Siyapaa' stars Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar and Yami Gautam.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has asked the Central Board of Film Certification for cancellation of the film's censor certificate.


HJS convenor Manoj Solanki has taken strong objection to some dialogues in the film, which is a story of a Pakistani man settled in London and his love affair with an Indian girl.

The HJS has objected to certain dialogues in the film, which it feels are "anti-national and in glorification of Pakistan".

The HJS is also meeting theatre owners in the state and requesting them not to screen the movie in Goa.

Solanki said thousands of Indian citizens were killed due to Pakistan-sponsored terror activities, but the film glorifies Pakistan.

"Government should immediately ban the film," he said.
