After its virtual boycott in Gujarat over lead actor Aamir Khan supporting Narmada dam issue, Fanaa has come under fresh attack for its content with the RSS mouthpiece alleging the idea behind the movie was "evidently insidious, trying to make a case for Kashmir's freedom struggle."
"If Gujarat has opposed the Hindi movie Fanaa, it has got good reasons...The protagonist in the movie Aamir Khan unapologetically defends jehadi terrorism. It makes you wonder if Dawood gang has started to influence the mainstream Hindi movies also," said a front-page analysis of the movie in its latest issue Organiser.
Alleging that the idea behind the movie was "evidently insidious, trying to make a case for Kashmir's freedom struggle", it said, "Aamir Khan (in the movie) never gives up his jehadi cause till the end even when he is shot dead by his 'wife' Kajol.
When Kajol finds out he is trying to smuggle a nuclear trigger for his terrorist group, Khan tells her that it is only to force India and Pakistan to come to the negotiating table - as if India has been averse to negotiations.
"Aamir Khan should read newspapers instead of griping their coverage of events," it said.
The article, which ridiculed the storyline of the movie, concluded asking, "one wonders why BJP did not seek banning Fanaa all over the country when the theme was unambiguously anti-national?"
