‘Delhi Belly’ makers in trouble, yet again?

It is a problem that could wheel the film and its producers down the road to some serious legal issues

There is no rest for the wicked in B-town. And Delhi Belly is one of the wickedest, most interesting and sickest films made recently, if you go by what the critics and general public are saying, anyway. In all the you-know-what that is flying around, many seem to have missed a small facet of the film that could, if it comes to that, cause much trouble for the makers of the madness. The auto company, Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL), is considering legal action against the film, for “allegedly depicting one of the company’s cars in a derogatory manner”. According to a spokesperson from HMIL, “Our legal team is looking into the matter and watching the film clips. Accordingly, we will decide our future course of action.” The production house denies any knowledge of any such lawsuit. The problem is a car, “seemingly looking like a Santro”, which has been used in the film – though without the branding evident; and some of the dialogue referring to the car is, the makers say, in dreadfully bad taste. In Delhi Belly the rather small and unnamed automobile is not only mangled, but derided by the rather large Kunaal Roy Kapoor, who says that “When a donkey ***** (mates) an autorickshaw, you get a car like this.” Of course, some tortuous mind has also come up with the fact that this one is Aamir Khan’s dig at rival Shahrukh Khan, because SRK endorses the brand of car made fun of in the movie. But that, wethinks, could be a bit of a stretch…Subscribe to me on YouTube
