A. R. Rahman Majid Majidi

The stars worked together on Muhammad: Messenger of God, which is the first of a planned trilogy about the life of the prophet, but the movie has sparked controversy among Muslim extremists, who are not happy with the use of the religious figure's name in the title.

Members of the Mumbai, India-based Raza Academy claim negative reviews of the film could be misinterpreted as criticism of the Prophet himself, while they also object to the depiction of Muhammad, which is not allowed under Islamic law.

The apparent violations have resulted in the issuance of the fatwas, legal opinions issued by a qualified legal authority.

Sir Mick Jagger wants to celebrate The Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary next year without Keith Richards.

The frontman fell out with the band's guitarist when Keith ridiculed him in his autobiography 'Life' ruining plans for an anniversary tour and while Mick would love to celebrate the special occasion by returning to the Marquee Club in London where they played their first gig, he won't be inviting Keith.

He told Live magazine: "Maybe we could go back to the Marquee to accept a plaque for 50 years of service instead of a tour. That could work - except Keith obviously can't come. Charlie Watts [who wasn't at the first performance] can come but he wouldn't get the plaque obviously."
