After IAF, Shahid's 'Mausam' raises hackles of Railways

Pankaj Kapoor's upcoming movie
'Mausam' is in fresh trouble with the Railway Ministry taking
"strong" objection to a scene, where the actor is seen
speeding in a car through an unmanned level crossing in front
of an approaching train, as it feels that it could encourage
youngsters to engage in such dangerous actions.
Concerned over increase in number of mishaps at unmanned
crossings which have claimed more than 130 lives in recent
past, Railways have decided to take up the matter with the
makers of the movie asking them to carry a disclaimer that the
they do not endorse such acts and these should not be
"The scene apart, we are also concerned over the fact
that it is enacted by actor Shahid Kapoor who is popular among
the youths," said a senior railway official, adding, a letter
would be sent to the film unit soon. The promos with the
particular scene are currently being aired by TV channels.
The movie had earlier raised hackles of Air Force which
objected to a 30-second aerial action sequence with Shahid
who plays an Air Force pilot.
Last week, the Indian Air Force (IAF) had objected to
certain action scenes in the film, where the actor plays
the role of a fighter pilot.
