The UP chief minister Mayawati has withdrawn permission granted for a grand show to promote Prakash Jha’s film Aarakshan which is about caste based reservations and stars Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan , Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpai and Prateik Babbar.
‘Apprehension of breach of peace’ was described as the official reason for the cancellation of permission for the show by the state administration. The UP government said that the proposed protests by the Republican Party of India and Swaraj Party against the show may create a law and order problem.
