Diljit Dosanjh’s ‘Number’ On Sunny Leone, Ban On Real Phone Numbers In Films

 After the  raucus  over  Sunny Leone’s  ostensible phone number  In Arjun  Patiala  , there are  talks at the  highest level to ban the   use of  verifiable phone numbers  in  films.

When Diljit Dosanjh decided  to do a number  with Sunny Leone for  the film Arjun Patiala  little  did he expect  the  ‘number’ would  backfire on his face, In one of the film’s  awkward sequences Sunny Leone makes a guest appearance and sexily offers  helpful cop Diljit her number.

It now turns  out  that the  number actually belongs  to a  man in Delhi named  Puneet Aggarwal who claims he  has been receiving calls and messages from strange  men asking for unmentionable  favours from ‘Sunny Leone’.Aggarwal is threatening legal action against  the  film’s makers.

But the film’s team seems  unfazed,

 One source  from the team said, “This is just free publicity for a  man who  until yesterday was unknown to the  world. We  are also getting written  about post-weekend because of  this incident. So the advantage/disadvantage   is mutual.”

The larger issue is  the use of cellphone numbers in  films. How do filmmakers avoid giving out random  numbers in their  films  that somewhere have a  real-life  equivalents?

A  source  from the censor board which doesn’t wish to be named says concealing  onscreen numbers from being used  by the public has a very simple safety rule. “You  beep out the last digit if the number is vocalized on screen, or you blur  the number if shown on screen. It’s that simple. We wonder why Arjun Patiala did not follow this  procedure.”
