The fate of much controversial Kahaani metro scene would be decided today.
Kolkata Metro Railway General Manager P B Murthy will watch the film and decide whether the scene in question should be axed from the film or not, reports Mumbai Mirror. "After watching the promos, we found the scene very objectionable. The Metro has been plagued by suicides. Till date we have registered 224 cases of suicides of which 124 have resulted in death. Following our objection, the said scene has been removed from the promos," Kolkata Metro spokesperson Pratyush Ghosh had told IANS. After a discussion with the Metro authorities, director Sujoy Ghosh has agreed to submit a video of the entire scene where Vidya Balan who plays the central character is shown being pushed in front of a speeding train by a man. "Ghosh will give us the video shortly. After watching the clip and discussing with the filmmaker, we will decide whether the scene should be retained in the movie or not. It is a dream sequence and Sujoy says is integral to the movie," Pratyush had earlier said. VIDEO "Our cause of concern is how much the scene can damage Metro's image. Only after watching the entire clip we would be able judge that and decide accordingly," he added. In the movie, Vidya plays the character of Vidya Bagchi, a seven months pregnant NRI woman who arrives in the city in search of her missing husband. VIDEO
