The “Singh is Kinng” video featuring Snoop Dogg and Akshay Kumar is just about set to be released. The release of the project has been delayed some because the Director of the video was arrested in the UK for failing to show the contents of his baggage to Airport Security.
The official word from Magic Number Films:
After nearly a week of interrogation by airport officials in the UK, Strangio Odeur has been released, according to a statement made this morning by his attorney.
Odeur was en route to Los Angeles via Finland to deliver the original production tapes of his Director’s cut for, ‘Singh is King’- the music video. After officials requested to search his luggage, an argument ensued -and Odeur was detained indefinitely. He has now cleared customs and has boarded a flight to the United States. Odeur released this statement via his attorney:
“They can detain the body of Strangio – but they can not detain the art of Strangio! Thank you to all my new fans in America and the great people of India for sending your thousands of e-mails of support. Freedom of expression is treasured worldwide…East and West unite! Prepare for my masterpiece.”
The “official word” fails to mention that he spat at the Security Official.
Am I the only one thinking that his name translates to “Strange Odour?”
While we wait for the worldwide release – 7PM EST tonight, have a look at Snoop getting his turban tied by RDB’s Manj.
