Mumbai: Pakistani ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali, who will arrive Mumbai on Thursday for the music launch will be given full police protection on demand of makers of movie ‘Ghar Vapsi’.

The film, directed by Suhaib Ilyasi of “India’s Most Wanted” fame, marks Ghulam Ali’s acting debut and he has also sung an Indian patriotic song for it.

“I will request the Mumbai police and the Maharashtra government to provide protection to Ghulam Ali saab during his stay in Mumbai. There is a threat to Ali saab by Shiv Sena. They did not allow him to perform in India last year,” Ilyasi said.

Ghulam Ali’s concerts in Mumbai and Pune were called off in October last year after the Shiv Sena threatened to disrupt his live performance. Ilyasi is hopeful that the singer’s presence at his film’s music launch on Friday will be trouble-free.

“We hope Maharashtra government treats him as an important dignitary and we hope he has a safe stay in Mumbai,” Ilyasi said.

He said his film is “about the latest debate on intolerance”.

“Films are the reflection of our society and this film reflects about whatever is happening in our country,” added the filmmaker. While there were protests in Maharashtra against the concerts Ghulam Ali, Kerala government had invited him.(IANS)

Akshay Kumar shares a close bond with John Abraham but he does not seem to be happy with his film “Gold” and the latter’s forthcoming movie “Satyameva Jayate” releasing on the same date.

Akshay and John have together worked in “Garam Masala”, “Desi Boyz” and “Housefull 2′ but now, “Gold” and “Satyameva Jayate” is going to clash against each other on Independence Day (August 15).

Talking about the clash, John had said: “Akshay is my good friend. We get along really well and we wish best for each other… to avoid clash between the two films is T-Series and Excel Entertainment’s responsibility.”

Akshay sarcastically expressed his displeasure over the issue by taking a jibe at John’s statement.

“It is true that he is my friend… and I have learned that anyone can release their film with other actor’s film so, next time, I will also do the same (laughs).
