I've not even watched 'Haider'; forget complaining against it: Omar Abdullah

Oct 9, 2014 NR

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah mocks reports about his complaint against Vishal Bhardwaj's "Haider"; says he has not even watched the movie yet.

Reacting sharply to a news report by a news portal that the chief minister had complained to Bollywood film-maker Vishal Bhardwaj over the film's depiction of Kashmir, Omar wrote on his Twitter page, "So this website has to be awarded for the most amazing work of fiction I have seen in a very long time."

He demanded the news be withdrawn with a correction.

"So where oneindia.in heard that I had seen the movie and proceeded to complain to Vishal about it I will never know. I expect a retraction", he said on Twitter.

An adaptation of William Shakespeare's famous drama 'Hamlet', Vishal Bhardwaj has tried to portray the story of violence and innocence during turbulent periods in Kashmir through "Haider". The movie has been appreciated by both critics and general viewers. Click the Movie button below for more info:
