2.0, the country’s biggest motion picture landed into troubles after several cellular companies lodged a complaint against the movie for showing the usage of mobile phones in bad light. After the trailer showcased the disappearance of mobiles and the lead antagonist Akshay Kumar calling the people using mobiles as murderes, controversies triggered. COAI (Cellular Operators Association of India) wanted the censor board to re-examine the film in this angle. A close source from the team of 2.0 clarified about the controversy. Here are the excerpts from the source about the controversy:
2.0 has nothing to say against cellular companies.
A limit has been set on the radiation emitted and the film explains how the companies are flouting it.
Several birds and animals are getting affected because of the radiation which is the major theme of 2.0.
2.0 reveals about certain guidelines that are implemented globally and that are to be respected across India.
The film’s producers ‘Lyca Productions’ are one of the largest mobile companies across UK and they are not here to make a film against mobile phones on such a lavish standards.
Shankar and his team have always done responsible films and 2.0 is an out and out commercial package and will have no scope for controversies. The film delivers a strong social message.
