It is not uncommon for Bollywood movies to get their facts wrong. Several filmmakers have made some mistakes on screen, which, over the years, become a part of memorable trivia. For example Genius, the Bollywood film which released in August, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, veteran actor Mithun Chakrabarty and debutant Utkarsh Sharma in lead roles.
It is creating a buzz but all for the wrong reasons. Pakistani netizens are trolling ‘Genius’ for a glaring mistake the makers could have avoided with a bit of research.
The clip of a scene from the film Genius featuring Mithun Chakraborty is making rounds online and being trolled by Pakistanis for some reasons, which the Indian audience (if there was one) missed.
A Pakistani computer scientist and academic Umar Saif tweeted out the mistake along with the snippet of the movie. “Arfa technology park making waves beyond borders. P.S. Bollywood needs better script writers,” read the tweet.
Wondering what’s wrong with the clip? A scene in the movie Genius shows Pakitan’s popular Arfa technology park, which is an IT building, as that of the country’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The movie clip has created quite a buzz on social media, with many trolling Bollywood for getting basic facts wrong.
Here are some tweets posted trolling the controversial clip of the film ‘Genius’:

More funnier is that the building is shown to be in Islamabad, its not the script writer but the movie editor that is responsible for such obvious blunder.

Bollywood has a big fan following in Pakistan and its films and actors and actresses have immense popularity there. But this one film failed to strike a chord with them.
Wondering which movie we are talking about? Watch the trailer here:
