Screening of film continues

Special Correspondent

PANAJI: Screening of the film “Slumdog Millionaire” continued without any interruption at the Inox Multiplex here on Saturday, according to sources in the cinema.

Activists of the Shiv Sena had partially damaged the multiplex on Friday after the management refused to stop screening the film.

The Hindu Janjagran Samiti had also staged a dharna outside the theatre protesting against the screening.

The police had detained 12 activists of the Shiv Sena, led by Goa unit president of the party Upendra Gaonkar, for the violence.

The samiti members through a press release on Friday demanded that screening of the film be stopped as “it has shown Lord Rama and Indian culture in poor light, thus hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus”.
