Dubai, Aug 18 (UNI) The UAE government has stopped the screening of Salman Khan starrer ''God Tussi Great Ho'', saying it violated Islamic teachings.
The National Media Council, the media watch dog that doubles up as censor board, yesterday withdrew the recently-released Bollywood movie from all UAE cinemas.
''God Tussi Great Ho'' is the story of Arun Prajapati (Salman Khan) who loses his balance in life, his job, his girl (Priyanka Chopra) and for all his losses, he blames ''God''. With all his bickerings, ''God'' decides to meet Arun face to face and endows him with divine powers, challenges to take on the big job and see if he can do it any better.
Cinemas received orders from the council to stop the screening of the movie, which also stars actors Amitabh Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra, with immediate effect.
A senior official at the council said cinema-goers had submitted scores of complaints regarding the content of the film. Those who saw the movie told the authorities that they were shocked to find that Bachchan played the role of "God", a newspaper said. UNI XC SB RAI1041
