‘Fanaa’ dams torpedos, moves ahead

Police attend pic's late opening

Aamir Khan starrer “Fanaa” opened Tuesday in the state of Gujarat, 11 days late, after India’s Supreme Court ordered police protection for exhibs intimidated by threats from protesters angered by the thesp’s support for people displaced by a local dam.

The Amber Theater in Jamnagar was the first to show helmer Kunal Kohli’s hit terrorist movie, which opened May 26 in India and the rest of the world.

Right-wing activists oppose Khan, who wants the ruling Indian People’s Party to provide alternatives for residents made homeless by the controversial new hydroelectric dam on Gujarat’s Narmada River.

Led by Jamnagar’s mayor, the activists protested peacefully in front of the theater. However, the protest put off cinemagoers — the theater was only 30% full for the showing of the Yash Raj Films pic.
