Goa lawmakers to discuss 'Dum Maaro Dum'

Goa Assembly to discuss Dum Maaro Dum.

Dum Maaro DumFormer Goa Tourism Minister Fransisco Pacheco today moved a calling attention motion on Rohan Sippy's forthcoming movie Dum Maaro Dum claiming it will spoil the state’s image and affect its tourism industry.

The NCP legislator added that the already dented image of the Goan tourism industry would be further damaged by the movie.

Pacheco said, “We are looking at family tourism in the state. We don't want the sex and drug tourism spot tag (for Goa),” he said. The calling attention motion will be taken up by Goa Legislative Assembly Speaker Pratapsingh Rane during the ongoing session.

The leader, who was the brain behind the famous Go Goa 365 Days Holiday Destination campaign, said that people believe whatever is shown in movies. “Looking at the promos, it is clear that it portrays a bad image of Goa,” he said. He added that he would also move the High Court seeking a ban on the release of the movie.

“If the movie is fiction, they should have avoided naming Goa in it. An entire state cannot be defamed by a filmmaker's imagination,” he said.

Efforts to contact Sippy's publicist fetched no response. The state police had earlier asked the producer to screen the movie for them before releasing it in theatres. Chief Minister Digambar Kamat had also said that he would ask the police to look into the matter.

Dum Maaro Dum stars Abhishek Bachchan and Bipasha Basu and is due to release in mid-April.
