Madras Cafe: BJP activists to protest

"The film with John Abraham in leading role, has a negative portrayal of LTTE chief V Prabhakaran. The movie deals with the Rajiv Gandhi assassination and mentions Tamil organisations as terror outfits," Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar said here.

In fact, Tamil organizations spread across the country have asked for a country-wide ban for the film.

"Several Tamil brethren live in Mumbai as it is the country's financial capital. Many organisations have registered their opposition to the film, with the BJP. It is felt that there will be social discord if the film is allowed to be shown here. If the state government fails to stop the screening of the film, BJP workers would take to streets and protest at the cinema halls," Shelar said.
