Controversy over Billu Barber!
February 09, 2009

The Salon and Beauty Parlors’ Association in Maharashtra have decided to launch a protest against the title of Shah Rukh Khan’s forthcoming film Billu Barber. The film is slated to be released on February 13th. According to Uday Takke, the president of the association, ‘barber’ is a derogatory term and therefore the title should be changed to Billu

Billu Barber

Hairdresser. He added that there are several women hairdressers across the country and should Billu Barber turn out to be a big hit then they might also be addressed as barbers in future.

Billu Barber’s producers Red Chillies Entertainment have arranged for a special screening for the members of the association on February 12th. But the association members wanted the show to be preponed to February 9th as it would help them seek legal action should there be any derogatory scenes in the film. It is surprising to note that this protest has been raked up after the King Khan had sent vinyl posters, cassettes and CDs to be displayed in about 500 shops at the barber shops in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, the association discussed the issue with Shah Rukh Khan and it was decided to remove the term from the hoardings and posters. SRK had promised Uday Takke that he would send teams of people to paste a white paper over the name Barber, as it was difficult to reprint them considering the costs involved. The King Khan said that though he feels that the term is not derogatory, he did not want to offend anybody.
