The great writer William Shakespeare once said, "What's in a name?". Well… ask Neeraj Pandey. The last couple of days saw the name of 'Neeraj Pandey' trending. In Bollywood, the name of 'Neeraj Pandey' is synonymous as the very man who gave us blockbuster films like Baby, Special 26, A Wednesday etc.
A spokesperson from the 'real' Neeraj Pandey's production house Friday Filmworks clarified, "The story about Neeraj Pandey, the Baby director, being thrown out of the theatres for not standing up on the national anthem has turned out to be false. Apparently, the person who was thrown out and taken by the police is a resident of Kandivali and shares the same name as the director. The journalist who covered the story did not bother to cross check it with the director and filed the story without Neeraj Pandey's (the director) consent."
