Vantage point

Kaante as we know is allegedly financed by the underworld dons. So the Shivsena is threatening demonstrations(obviously violent, that's a given) unless it is banned. This means they will burn stuff and create controversy when it releases. But did you know that the producer of Kaantey is Pritish Nandy, Shivsena's man in the Rajyasabha(Upper House)? So when the film is a hit cos of the controversy, a la Gadar, guess who benefits in the end?

*donning the Nostradamus hat*
Friday will the white curtain burn
And people know about the film more
Everyone goes and watches the movie
Bald man gives Bal man fat cheque

*removing Nostradamus hat*
That's my prediction for the whole imbroglio waiting to unfold.
