Angry Hindu leaders are demanding producers of a blockbuster Bollywood film remove controversial scenes depicting Spain's famous Running of the Bulls.
Scenes from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara were reportedly shot in Pamplona, Spain during the famous bull event, part of the annual festival of Sanfermines that involves crowds running in front of a herd of the beasts let loose throughout the town's streets.
The purpose of the event is to transport the bulls from corrals to the bullring where they would later be killed.
But top religious scholars have called on producers to delete the scenes from the film's final version, insisting movie bosses are glorifying an inhumane act.
Religious statesman Rajan Zed, President of Universal Society of Hinduism, tells WENN: "Non-violence is a greatest virtue. We have long been out of the caves. Let us get rid of these outdated traditions. (The) World will be a better place without these blood-sports."
Meanwhile, Spanish-American actress Charo has also called for the bull-running scenes to be deleted from the film.
In a letter to the film's director Zoya Akhtar, she writes, "Deriving any pleasure from abusing bulls is something we should all be ashamed of and certainly nothing that should be promoted in a feature film."
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is scheduled for release in April (11).
