Mumbai. The news of 30 MLAs from Karnataka taking off on an Amazon safari to study waterfalls and to understand its flora and fauna seems to have enraged one more entity besides Arnab Goswami.
The Mumbai based industry has for the first time come out in open taking on politicians by slamming the alleged study tour and calling it a sham.
“They want to learn from foreign countries and implement those ideas at home. Fine, but why spend money to go abroad!?” wondered Music director Pritam, who claimed that he didn’t go to Indonesia when he copied the tunes for his “Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai” song or any trip to Korea for “Pehli Nazar Mein” song.
Pritiam’s logic was echoed by veterans like Anu Malik who wondered why can’t the MLAs just watch YouTube videos and CDs of Amazon forest to copy them.
“In this age of information technology, you don’t need to spend so much to copy ideas from abroad!” he added.
Mahesh Bhatt, another veteran with strong views on social issues, too blasted the MLAs and claimed that it was already a “Murder” of democracy when Karnataka MLAs had gone on a similar junket last year. Bhatt claimed that the MLAs were being “Unfaithful” to the people.
“Now that they have done it again, it’s ‘Murder-2’, and the citizens have to ‘The Chaser’ and stop them from going abroad,” Bhatt proposed, “If we don’t protest and expose them, they will continue to have ‘The Hidden Face’ and indulge in ‘Murder-3’ shamelessly.”
