SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, May 24) – The local Sikh community in Fiji says the Hindi movie "Jo Bole So Nihaal" has brought no adverse reaction from viewers here.

General Secretary of Sikh Association of Fiji Surjeet Singh said he had seen the movie and he liked it. He said the movie was not only about terrorism but also had bits of humour in it.

Singh said he didn't know why others who have seen the movie overseas would have a different view.

His comments came as two cinemas in India were the targets of bomb attacks after screening the movie.

The movie is reportedly embroiled in a controversy over some scenes allegedly offending the religious sentiments of Sikhs.

Gaiety-Galaxy cinema halls in suburban Bandra, which screened two shows of the film, have decided to stop them from Monday, while others would continue to show the movie.

Meanwhile, police have made elaborate security arrangements in cinema halls in the city.

After the twin blasts in Delhi, police had on Sunday night posted additional manpower outside theatres screening the movie as a precautionary measure.

Meanwhile, the producer of the film, Babloo Pachisia, said the blasts had nothing to do with his film and he decided to continue screening the movie.
