BABY Director Neeraj Pandey Victim of Poor Journalism, Confused with Unrelated Person Escorted Out of Theater

By Akilesh Subramanian/Friday Filmworks

The story about Neeraj Pandey, the Baby director, being thrown out of the theatres for not standing up on the national anthem has turned out to be false.

Apparently the person who was thrown out and taken by the police is a resident of Kandivali and shares the same name as the director.

The journalist who covered the story did not bother to cross-check it with the director and filed the story without Neeraj Pandey's (the director) consent.

Indian Express rightly covered the matter and with the real details.
