Scandalous times

Friday witnessed the release of another Hindi film based on some of the infamous MMS scandals that have made news in the last few years. But, I Don’t Love U does not aim to bank on sleaze, claim its lead actors Chetna Pande and Ruslaan Mumtaz.

In city on Friday, Chetna said, “It is a realistic film that is based on numerous MMS scandals, not any one in particular.” The actor also added that the film’s focus is on the way youngsters see love. “In today’s times, trust in relationships is diminishing. There is someone being used by somebody. I Don’t Love U also talks about the hazards of technology and how its misuse can play havoc in people’s lives,” she said.

Hoping that the film inspires a ‘positive change’ in the society, the film’s male lead Ruslaan Mumtaz [who made his debut six years ago in Hindi teenage love story Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar and was later seen in films such as Dangerous Ishhq] said from Mumbai that the film made him view girls involved in obscene MMS clippings as ‘victims’.

“Girls who are victims of MMS scandals should not be banished by the society, but instead be loved and their closed ones should stand by them,” added Ruslaan, who was also allegedly involved in an MMS scandal along with Sasheh Agha, daughter of singer Salma Agha. “That is an old story, but I was not the part of the MMS clipping. I just knew the one who was a part of it,” claims Ruslaan evasively.
