Hawayein faces government hurdles in Jammu and Kashmir
By Vidya Sampat
The director of Hawayein, Ammtoje Mann, has yet to tackle the government hurdles. The film, which was passed by the Censor Board and which made headlines in Canada, US and UK, has been banned in Jammu and Kashmir. Surprisingly, the film did well for six days, when it was released on August 27, but suddenly, the government anticipated violence and hence decided to ban the film. The film is based on Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination and the rioting that followed. According to Mann, during the filming of the movie, he met many of the riot victims and, "There are families who have never repaired their burnt homes. They have suffered this pain for 19 years, yet the politicians, who perpetrated this crime, are still escorted by black cat commandos. The film has got an overwhelming response everywhere. The surprising thing is even after so much violence occurred in Punjab, no one in Mumbai, Kolkata or Chennai was aware of these atrocities. This is why I made Hawayein," he explains.
