Karan wants no controversy… apologizes
October 03, 2009

Karan Johar’s recently released Wake Up Sid has stirred the hornet’s nest so much so that the director was forced to apologize to the MNS chief Raj Thackeray. The director was strongly criticized for mentioning the capital of Maharashtra as Bombay instead of Mumbai in the movie Wake Up Sid. Karan had incurred the wrath of Raj Thackeray for referring the city as Bombay while it was renamed as Mumbai a few years ago. Raj Thackeray had said earlier, “If any producer dares to rename this city and refer to it as Bombay, then my men will protest in typical MNS-style.”

Karan, meeting the press after paying his obeisance to Thackeray said, “I apologize if I have hurt anyone’s sentiments and so have agreed to put a one-line disclaimer, stressing this, right at the start of the film.”
