Halla Bol takes a dig at superstars
[an error occurred while processing this directive] Rajkumar Santoshi's Halla Bol has managed to highlight not just some socially relevant issues; it has also hit hard at the politics of role cutting which is so prevalent in the world of Bollywood.

In a statement which is not-so-subtle, the super star character played by Ajay Devgan is shown clearly instructing his film director to cut the role of relative newcomer in one of the two-hero projects. For on-screen purpose, the young boy in question is Tusshar Kapoor (in a guest appearance) who in spite of being sincere, hardworking and true admirer of Devgan's work, is shown the door once the latter gets the director to weigh is options.

[an error occurred while processing this directive] 'Retain his role and make your next film also solely with Tushar or expect my services any further only if you change the film's script to strengthen my character' - is the message conveyed.

With last few years bringing out the issue of role cutting of co-actors in many a mainstream films, Halla Bol picks up headlines from newspaper and tabloid gossips and throws it open to a viewer for consumption.
