Almost everyone has seen by now the vulgar song with obscene scenes in the upcoming movie “Mein Hoon Shahid Afridi”. There was a lot of debate even in this forum about how appropriate or inappropriate it was and many thought that it was a stunt to get some much needed publicity for the venture.
The latest reports are that Shahid Afridi has demanded that the producers should cut all the obscene scenes from the film before it is released. We all know that Shahid Afridi is very conservative by nature. Since this movie is related to him directly so he can’t possibly allow such scenes to be a part of it.
Shahid Afridi said, “”I had given permission for the film with an aim to give kids some positive healthy entertainment, to divert their minds towards cricket and it should not have obscene things.”
He also added, “I want to tell the people that the film is not related to my life…A lot of kids and families would go to watch the movie because of me and if they see things like that they will feel bad, so I hope they remove those scenes and run the film.”
Shahid Afridi’s statements clearly go to show that this film is NOT going to be about the life of Shahid Afridi but the story actually is that the film is about a boy who idealizes the icon and wants to be like him.
Shahid Afridi further added that he was not part of the movie also, he was asked to make a guest appearance but he refused, “”I had declined the offer to act because my elders are against acting, nor did I charge a single penny from them,” he said. Shahid Afridi had to make this statement because the promo of the movie suggested that he was part of the film.
The film has already been delayed due to technical problems and now it seems like there are more problems ahead.
Are you happy with the step that Shahid Afridi has taken? Do you think the producers will pay heed to his demands?
