'Nanban' runs into trouble; shows cancelled

Shows at a multiplex have been cancelled after suspected activists broke glass panes and burnt posters.

Salem, Tamil Nadu: Shows of the latest Vijay-starrer 'Nanban', a remake of Bollywood blockbuster '3 idiots', at a multiplex here have been cancelled after suspected activists of a Tamil outfit broke glass panes of the complex and burnt posters of the movie.

Cut-outs of the film's director Shankar were also burnt last night after activists, belonging to Indian Jananayaga Katchi, protested against "objectionable dialogue" in the movie denigrating the outfit's founder Chellamuthu, police said today.

All the night shows were cancelled, police said, adding, 33 persons belonging to the outfit were arrested.

The owner of the muliplex S Oblichetty said to avoid further trouble, the movie would be screened only after the dialogue is deleted.

Security of the multiplex has been increased.

Cases have been registered under various IPC sections relating to rioting and attempt to murder, police added.
