The screening of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ was stopped at two single-screen theatres and one auditorium of a multiplex chain here after protests by Youth Congress against the controversial film. “We’ve stopped screening of the film from today, the second day after its release, apprehending (any) untoward incident after parts of a screen were torn up in a multiplex in a mall at Park Circus,” Navin Chokhani, owner of single-screen Navina Cinema, said.
The movie’s screening was stopped, though its 2-pm show on the first day had passed off smoothly, Chokhani said. A spokesperson of Ashoka Cinema, the other single screen where the film was stopped, said, “We have decided to suspend the matinee show of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ from today in view of the agitations by some group.”
