Threats delay 'Dunno Y' release

By
The makers of Dunno Y... Na Jaane Kyun have decided to delay the film's release after the actors received threatening emails.

The film, from first-time director Sanjay Sharma, deals with homosexuality and has been the subject of protests from right-wing groups.

After newcomers Kapil Sharma and Yuvraj Parashar, who star in the lead roles, received the threats the film makers decided to postpone the release by a week.

"The actors have also been getting threatening mails from hardline individuals and organisations over the last week warning them with dire consequences if the gay film was released," said a statement from the film's publicist.

"The makers of the film are concerned about the security and concerns of their stakeholders and partners of the film."

Now set for a Diwali release, the low-budget film will be competing against big-budget Bollywood films Golmaal 3 and Action Replayy at the box office.
