Billu Barbar under Controversy

What’s a film without controversies and much awaited ‘Billu Barber’ is no exception to it. This time the protest comes from The Salon and Beauty Parlors’ Association in Maharashtra who have a problem with the title of the film.

According to Uday Takke, the president of the association, ‘barber’ is a derogatory term and therefore the title should be changed to Billu 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.

To appease the association members, Billu Barber’s producers Red Chillies Entertainment have arranged for a special screening for them 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.

Not the one to flare up issues, SRK has 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.
