Gym instructors burn Emraan Hashmi’s effigy; miffed with DTBHJ

MUMBAI: Protesters from a local gymnasium blackened actor Emraan Hashmi’s face on the posters of his latest film Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji and burnt his effigy.
A group of gym instructors took the management of the Smruti Cinema in Nagpur city by surprise, when they barged into the theatre premises and began blackening Emraan’s face on the posters of Madhur Bhandarkar’s romantic comedy. It took the bystanders and the management a while to realize that they were upset about the portrayal of the actor’s character as a gym instructor in the movie.
“The protesters claimed that Emraan was shown in bad light and that his portions should be deleted,” informed theatre owner Akshaye Rathi, who refused to relent to their demands, even as they resorted to violence, pulling down posters and burning them along with an effigy of Emraan Hashmi.
