Posts Tagged ‘Apna Haath Jagannath’

Sorry for this overdose of Kaminey but few things we really canttoilet graffitti escape. Because these newbits make our day by making us ROFL. 

Today’s TOI has a damn interesting piece of news on Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey. Its about “Apna Haath Jagannath“, the writing on the loo door in one of the scenes in Kaminey. The Puri priests think its a derogatory reference to their Lord Jagannath.

We are not sure whats the origin of this phrase but its very common loo graffiti across North India. Schools, colleges, public toilets or trains, you can spot it anywhere. Loo graphiti is a specialised art by itself and in India, it seems we have artists everywhere. 

Back to AHJ! The news is that a case has been filed against Kaminey’s producer for the use of the line “apna haath jagannath“. We wonder if the priests know the real meaning of the line and in what context it is used. Because according to this report, it seems the protest is only because there is a picture of a scantily clad woman next to the writing. Wish someone could tell them the ‘real’ meaning of the phrase…the fun be double!
