The story is about a class war that divides two friends and considering it as a classic film in India, it still remains one of the finest movies of India.

So when, a person types the word country after the name of the movie, Google will show the flag and the map of the country where the movie was made.

Stooping low in their act, a Pakistani daily, Daily Pakistan, published on their website, “Like majority of Pakistanis, the US-based tech giant considers India as a “Namak Haram country’. ”
