Did You Know?


Due to violations of Supreme Court laws, which state that no vehicles or smoke/polluting devices are to come within 500 meters of the Taj Mahal (on 11 December), by the unit of Shaad Ali, the director of the film, the District Magistrate and Senior Superintendent of the Police of Agra, have been issued notices by the civil judge (junior division) Shahid Raza. The court issued the notices based on the plea of social workers Subhash Dhal, Jagdish Varma and Rajnish Gupta. On the said date, the unit used black smoke devices, generator sets within 200 meters of the Taj and even brought vehicles within the same distance and despite being brought to the notice of the district administration, no action was taken to sort the matter or stop the shooting.

Excellent score! excellent movie!
23 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It was a refreshing to listen to Bunty aur Bubly music. I could feel my roots reaching out for me. "Kimam Ki khushboo hai..." touch of class! Go on Shaad! I am not only impressed by the cinematic genius of the young director but also by his deep understanding of the Indian popular culture Abhishek-Rani look very good together I hope we see more of the together. Amitabh is cool he is the coolest main man in Bollywood. The ease at which he adapts to his roles is phenomenal. Indian musicals are getting better day by day and BNB is no exception. Bollywood coming to age and its good to see.I hope to see more of Shaad movies in years to come and wish him best of luck.
