One of the demonstrators were heard saying, calling the film propaganda to “show former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress party in poor light,” youth Congress activists said, “We will not allow screening of this film anywhere. It shows Congress leaders in poor light.” Following the protest, the show was cancelled.”The respective shows had to be cancelled in two theatres due to agitation keeping in mind safety of the guests,” a spokesperson of the multiplex chain was quoted as saying by PTI.
