Indian folks upset about censors trying to prevent Fahrenheit 9/11 release

Seems that some censoring folks in India are thinking about preventing Fahrenheit 9/11 from being shown in India (um...the largest democracy in the world). Rumor has it there may be some desire to avoid "offending" the American authorities. Ah. Aren't the Bollywood movies with their awful production, recycled and copied plots (straight from many American movies), pelvic thrusts (but gosh, kisses are forbidden!), synchronized dancing, dream sequences, and predictable stories much more "offensive"? Oh wait, they're offensive to me, not the American authorities per se. :> Hopefully this matter will be cleared up and India can regain its status as...the world's largest DEMOCRACY.

My parents are in India right now hangin' with the fam, so i'll find out what the buzz is around Delhi on this issue, and post it here...
