Karan Johar apologized to Raj Thackaray and Shiv Sena for referring Mumbai as Bombay in his movie Wake Up Sid. And what else can you expect from him. When eyes are only on cash register you cannot hurt any ones feeling. So beg their pardon and live the life of an asshole that you are.
Protests where also against Kaminey which refers to activities against non mumbaikars in city. Shows were stalled for days in Mumbai, but Director Vishal Bharadwaj went on with the release in other parts of India and movie did reasonably well too. So for a movie to work well you need not butter the arses of politicians.
Latest news is that Anurag Kashyap refused to changed his movie's title from Bombay Velvet to Mumbai Velvet. He says the movie is set at a time when Raj Thakaray was not even born and city was called Bombay and if any thing bad happens he will resort to legal action. Now thats a real man talking.
