Omar Abdullah denies he complained against movie 'Haider'
Thursday October 9, 2014 8:42 AM, IANS

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has denied news reports about his complaint against Vishal Bhardwaj's "Haider", saying he had not even watched the movie yet.

Reacting sharply to reports carried by a news portal that said the chief minister had complained to Bollywood film maker Vishal Bhardwaj over the film's depiction of Kashmir, Omar wrote on his Twitter site, "So this website has to be awarded for the most amazing work of fiction I have seen in a very long time."

Omar Abdullah has also demanded the news be withdrawn with a correction.

"So where heard that I had seen the movie and proceeded to complain to Vishal about it I will never know. I expect a retraction", he said in another comment on Twitter.

An adaptation of William Shakespeare's famous drama Hamlet, Vishal Bhardwaj has tried to portray the story of violence and innocence during turbulent periods in Kashmir through "Haider".

The movie has been co-scripted by talented Kashmiri writer Basharat Peer whose book 'Curfewed Nights' had been very well received by both readers and critics.
