kyaa super kool hain hum

The Congress in Goa Thursday demanded a ban on the Ekta Kapoor produced film "Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum," saying the film offended the sensibilities of the Christian community.

Addressing a press conference here, Congress spokesperson and legislator Reginaldo Lourenco said that a first information report (FIR) would be filed against Kapoor in Panaji Friday.

"We are demanding a ban on the screening of the film because it insults Christians. The FIR will be filed tomorrow," Lourenco said.

A scene in the film, which stars Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh, shows another actor, Chunky Pandey (playing the role of a priest), solemnise the wedding of a dog and a bitch.

Lourenco raised the issue of a possible ban on the film or censoring the controversial scenes in it during the recently-concluded monsoon session of the Goa legislative assembly.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, however, said that the Central Board of Film Certification, the statutory censorship and classification body, functioned under the aegis of the central and not the state government and hence not much could be done by the Goa government.

"This is not under the jurisdiction of the state government because censor board jurisdiction lies with the central government. No religious group should be offended in the film. If you give me a complaint in writing, I will take it up with the board," Parrikar said.

Lourenco said that the Goa government had succeeded in banning "The Da Vinci Code", following protests by Christian groups several years back and that the same could be done with "Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum".

"Parrikar is making excuses. This is a film which offends the sensitivities of the Christian community," Lourenco said.

Christians constitute 26 percent of the Goa's 1.4 million population.

    The biggest pedophile gang is active and thriving in the church!
    Priests committing these heinous pedophile acts are protected by the highest authority of the christian church and they pressurize police not to prosecute these criminal priests so as to protect the good name of the religion!

    INSTEAD OF PROTESTING AND WASTING TIME ON A SILLY COMEDY SCENE IN A MOVIE, WHY IS THERE NOT A BIG HUE AND CRY ABOUT THOSE PEDOPHILE PRIESTS??
