After facing delays and objections from the censor board, Anupam Kher-starrer " Mr Bhatti On Chutti" will finally come out May 18.
Earlier this month "Mr Bhatti..." landed in trouble with the censor board when the makers of the film were asked to bleep out the names of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and former US president George Bush.
Directed by Karan Razdan, "Mr Bhatti on Chutti" talks about a common man, Mr. Bhatti's dream of a workable peace plan in a world ravaged by war and hunger. The film is also a celebration of Amitabh Bachchan's stardom. He plays Mr. Bhatti's conscience and also his inspiration.
Mr Bhatti is a delusional character who wins a trip to the Lake District out of the blue, he comes over, with a group of Indian tourists visiting the Lake District. Bhatti is under the impression that he has been called over by George W.Bush, for supposed peace talks being the delusional man he is. But its not just the scenery and the possible meeting with Bush, which attracts Bhattis interest. Alice an English girl also catches his eye. Alice has spent six months in India and is into meditation, bhajans and yoga. Perfect! But although Bhatti is immediately fascinated with Alice, so too is Prem, an eligible bachelor, also travelling with the group.
