'Parzania' to 'Vishwaroopam': Banned, canned and shunned films in India
Actor-director Kamal Haasan's controversial film 'Vishwaroopam', facing a two-week ban in Tamil Nadu amid protests by Muslim community, was released in Kerala but its screening was stopped by police in Hyderabad over security concerns. However, this isn't the first time that a film has courted controversy in India.
Above is a still from the film Parzania, a 2007 drama co-written and directed by Rahul Dholakia and David N Donihue. The film starred Naseeruddin Shah and Sarika in the lead roles. It was inspired by the true story of a Parsi boy who disappeared after the February 28, 2002 Gulbarg Society massacre. The film was banned in Gujarat.
