Photo: Aarakshan releases amid tight security

August 12, 2011 17:24 IST

Controversial film Aarakshan released in Mumbai amid tight security.

We spotted policement outside theatres -- like this one in Dadar -- so that the film could release without any incident.

Security has also been beefed up outside the homes of lead actors Amitabh Bachchan and Saif Ali Khan.

The Prakash Jha film has got into trouble because of its subject, and is facing a ban in states like Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh.
