After much controversy, ‘MSG’ becomes ‘The Messenger’

NEW DELHI: Following controversy over the film, which was cleared by the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal, self-proclaimed Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan’s much hyped film has been renamed MSG - The Messenger

The film was initially named MSG: Messenger of God, and had reportedly provided the fuel to the mass resignations from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) whose members had alleged interference from the Government.

The new name was revealed in a tweet sent by Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan himself, clarifying that the film had been cleared by the CBFC with a new name. 

He said the film is targeted at cleansing the worldly evils that have plagued society recently and threatened to corrupt it. It develops an insight into the exploration of spirituality with the entertainment factor remaining intact.

A first in its kind, the film has been trending all over social media creating a huge interest. The music with most songs sung by Singh has become an instant hit after its release online through the trailers and promos.

Slated or release on 13 February, the film has been produced by Hakikat Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., co-directed by Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan and Jeetu Arora Insan with and music directed by Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan.

At the release function last month of the music, Singh who is head of Indian social-spiritual welfare organization Dera Sacha Sauda, had said that he would be using the earnings from the film for the betterment of the community. He will support a new research initiative for Thalassemia patients and also donate most of the proceeds towards research on HIV.
