Apparently, the loud music being played at the birthday bash concerned the neighbours and police arrived at the scene to stop the party from continuing into the night.

But when some paparazzi present at the scene tried asking the police questions, the former were snubbed. The police who stopped Arpita’s birthday bash refused to answer media questions!

Trouble for Salman: Seers demand stay on 'Bajrangi Bhaijan' release

Mumbai: Apparently enraged over what they allege depiction of the Hindu god Hanuman in an “insulting manner” in Salman Khan’s soon to be released film “Bajrangi Bhaijan”, seers have threatened to unleash the “naga sadhus” —trident holding ascetics, known for their violent behaviour if insulted— to prevent the release of the movie.

“The film insults our gods...it must not be allowed to be released...the situation may become serious if it is allowed to be screened,” said a prominent Hindu seer in Allahabad on Wednesday.

The seer said that the “naga sadhus” reside in large numbers at Nashik and they could make life difficult for those who have made the movie. 

“If the saints at Nashik tell the naga sadhus about the content of the film, things will be difficult to manage...Nashik is not very far from Mumbai,” the seer went on to add.
Naga sadhus, according to the Hindu mythology, had come into being for protecting the “Sanatan Dharma” (Hinduism). 

The All India Akhara Parishad, an apex body of the Hindu saints in the country, said on Wednesday that the parishad would decide on a  strategy if the screening of the film was not stopped.

“We have come to know that some people have moved the court to prevent the film’s release....we will wait for the court verdict and chalk out our strategy in accordance with the decision of the court,” parishad president Mahant Narendra Giri said in Allahabad. A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Allahabad High Court seeking a ban on the movie. The petition may come up for hearing on Thursday. The petition said that “Bajarangi” was the name of the Hindu god Hanuman, who is also called “Bajrangbali”.
