New film JNU poster creates controversy on social media

The poster for the upcoming film JNU: Jahangir National University creates controversy among Indians on social media. Vinay Sharma wrote and directed the film which will come into cinemas on April 5, 2024.

The cast includes Siddharth Bodke, Urvashi Rautela, Piyush Mishra, Ravi Kishan, and Vijay Raaz. Reshi Desai, Atul Pandey, and Sonnalli Seygall are also part of the film cast.

The controversy started when JNU film actress Urvashi published the movie poster on her Instagram account. The poster shows an orange map of India with the caption “Can one educational university break the nation?

Moreover, Urvashi wrote behind closed walls of Education grows a conspiracy to break the nation, as the left and right collide, who will win this battle for domination?

This new film JNU poster creates controversy among netizens in India. Various celebrities, including trading experts Taran Adarsh and Komal Nahta, also shared this film poster which attracted a lot of conflicting remarks from netizens.

This is because the film’s title JNU refers to Jawaharlal Nehru University which has remained a controversial center in recent years. It dates back to the 2016 controversial event at Jawaharlal Nehru University when the phrase “Tukde Tukde” rose to prominence.

“Tukde Tukde” means “breaking into pieces” in Hindi. This slogan gained popularity when a group of students held an event on the JNU campus in Feb 2016 to celebrate the third anniversary of the executed Afzal Guru.

Afzal was a Kashmiri separatist accused of involvement in the 2001 Indian Parliament attack. During the event, certain groups of students purposely raised anti-India slogans and committed specific activities. Many Indian nationalists considered this event as a threat to the nation’s integrity.

In this regard, many netizens criticize the film as another example of propaganda. According to critics, this film will be a collection of lies. It will have nothing to do with the facts of Jawaharlal Nehru University.

The critics consider two main motives behind this film. One is to damage the reputation of one of India’s top colleges and the second goal is to divert people’s attention from real issues such as unemployment and poverty.
