But now on Wednesday, Vinod Bachchan along with the film`s writer Vinay Sharma will travel to Ghaziabad to show the film to a selected audience. ``We`re going to invite the sensible section of people in Ghaziabad whose opinion is valued in the area, to see our film and judge whether we`ve portrayed Ghaziabad in an unflattering light,`` says the confident producer. Bachchan is sure once the local intelligentsia sees the film on Wednesday it would automatically move away from the area of suspicion. ...Read full review
