‘Sins’ on schedule

World Brief

Bollywood filmmaker Vinod Pande is going ahead with Friday’s release of “Sins,” about a priest’s affair with a young girl, despite protests from the Catholic Church and TV stations’ refusal to air promos for the steamy pic.

Helmer says the movie, which has an A (adult) rating, is a fictional reconstruction of true events involving a priest in the southern state of Kerala.

“This portrayal of an ordained priest in such light will hurt … the Christian community. There appears to be a fine dividing line between pornography, truth and fiction,” the All India Catholic Union said in a statement.

Catholics intend to stage protests in Mumbai.

Christians make up 2% of India’s 1.3 billion population.
