Akhilesh not to watch 'Dedh Ishqiya'

Lucknow, Jan 10 : Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday cancelled his plan to attend the premiere of Hindi film 'Dedh Ishqiya' in Lucknow.

This comes after the state government faced severe criticisms for its cultural event Saifai Mahotsav where Yadav was seen enjoying the performances by Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit Nene.

The event was held at a time when the issue of Muzaffarnagar riots and several victims forced to leave the camps set up for them triggered a controversy in the political paradigm of the state.

Dedh Ishqiya is a comedy thriller film directed by Abhishek Chaubey starring Madhuri Dixit, Arshad Warsi, Naseeruddin Shah, and Huma Qureshi in the lead roles.

It is a sequel of Ishqiya and is produced by Raman Maroo and Vishal Bharadwaj.
