Mumbai bolo, Bombay nahi

After the hue and cry made over Karan Johar‘s usage of the word ‘Bombay’ in his film, Wake Up Sid! directors are steering clear of the word to avoid any controversies. Director Neeraj Pathak’s film, Right Yaa Wrong starring Sunny Deol and Irrfan Khan uses the word ‘Bombay’ twice. The word has been replaced by ‘Mumbai.’

Even though the film’s dubbing was already done, Neeraj has taken the pain to replace the words in fear of any future trouble. There are two scenes in the film which use Bombay instead of Mumbai. So, it was necessary to get the re-dubbing done.
