Mumbai, Sep 27: It seems films are not completed without courting even a single controversy. Prakash Jhas's film 'Chakravyuh' based on maosim landed in controversy with one of its songs "Tata, Birla, Ambani aur Bata, sab ne hai desh ko kaata," targeting top industrialists. "Tata, Birla, Ambani aur Bata, sab ne hai desh ko kaata," has been picturised on Abhay Deol, who plays a hardcore naxalite on the reel life.

The Censor Board objected to the contents and refused to pass it until the authorities concerned come with a disclaimer. Though Jha insisted that these names have been used symbolically and not intended to target any particular industrialist, the Censor Board did not agree and said that the industrialists were brands.Chakravyuh stars Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol, Esha Gupta, Manoj Bajpai, Kabir Bedi and Anjali Patil.

Prakash Jha said "The Censor Board told me that only if we put a disclaimer saying that these names have been used symbolically and we do not mean any harm or disrespect to any individual or brand will the song be cleared." This is not the first time that Prakash Jha's movie has run into trouble. Last year, Amitabh Bachchan-starrer "Aarakshan" had drawn flak from politicians of all hue over the issue of reservation. Earlier, his home-production "Rajneeti" was embroiled in controversy when Katrina Kaif's character in the movie was believed to be based on Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
