As Deepa Mehta's Preity Zinta starrer VIDESH aka HEAVEN ON EARTH gets ready to release in India on March 27th, there is widespread speculation in industry circles that her film based on domestic abuse is extremely similar to Aishwarya Rai starrer PROVOKED that had released two years back.

Deepa however has now cleared the misconception that her VIDESH is similar to Jag Mundhra directed PROVOKED. She states, ''This question has been with us since before we started making the film. But I will answer it till people watch the film and get rid of this misconception. It is not at all like PROVOKED. The difference is in the story. It is like saying all the love stories are the same; they are not. Abuse is a part of VIDESH, which is a meaningful film about what it is like for working class immigrants to leave their country and everything that they have known, leave their milieu, their extended families and go to a foreign place. It is about young women who come from villages and towns in India and go to Canada and get married. They have no support from their in-laws. The canvas of VIDESH is immigration and the isolation of immigration. Abuse doesn't exist by itself; it has a social context and the context of VIDESH is very different from that of PROVOKED.''
