Bomb blast during UPA regime, quotes from Bhagavad Gita and allusions to Yasin Bhatkal, upcoming movie India's Most Wanted is creating a tizzy on the Internet.
Mumbai: The teaser of Arjun Kapoor-starrer, India's Most Wanted, recently dropped and the clip has already caused a stir online. The teaser tells the story of 5 unlikely heroes who join forces to catch one of India's most wanted criminal, possibly the perpetrator of "52 blasts, 810 injured, 433 killed. Hyderabad. Jaipur. Ahmedabad. Bangalore. Pune. Delhi. Mumbai."
The clip shows a terrorist offering prayer as the Bhagavad Gita quote resounds in the background - "Aatma kabhi nahin marti, shareer marta hai. Main logon ko maar nahin raha. Bas unki aatma ko doosre shareer mein bhej raha hoon. Ye main nahin keh raha. Gita mein Shri Krishna ne kaha hai. (The soul never dies, only the body dies. I am not killing people, but only transferring souls from one body to another. It is not me saying this but it was said by Lord Krishna in Gita)."
Directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, the teaser is causing controversy over the casual mention of the Gita by a criminal to justify his actions. Irate netizens took to social media to ask for a ban on the movie using the hashtag #BoycottIndiasMostWanted.

The trailer of the movie drops on April 30 and the movie is set to release on May 24. Based on true events, the teaser has also made many fans curious about who is 'India's Osama'. Many are alluding that the story may be based on Indian Mujahideen terrorist Yasin Bhatkal, who was also featured in Delhi Police's list of 15 most wanted terrorists. He was accused to have a hand in the bombings in Ahmedabad (2008), Bangalore stadium (2010) and Pune (2012). He was finally detained at the Indo-Nepal border in 2013.
"Was the UPA government sleeping when India's Osama planned attacks after attacks and killed 433? Clearly, their policy of 'kadi ninda' was a flop," wrote one user.
Meanwhile, the director is refusing to comment on the teaser and a source told IANS that Gupta will talk only after the trailer is out on April 30.
