'Dum Maaro Dum' in Trouble

Dum Maaro Dum has been threatened with a legal ban by the Bombay High Court.

The Rohan Sippy production is said to portray the Indian state of Goa in a negative light, Mid Day reports.
Petitioner Savio Rodrigues argued: "The movie is against public order, decency and morality and there is clear violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution of India to the people of Goa".

The Mumbai tabloid reports that a petition against the film will be heard this Thursday.
"The film is scheduled to be released April 22, 2011, and as per the publicity given to the said film by the producers in the media, the said film will attract criminal-minded tourists and offenders and drive away decent travellers and tourists from Goa," added Rodrigues.

The movie, which stars Abhishek Bachchan and Bipasha Basu, has already run into controversy over its portrayal of the Goan police.
