Uh oh. Gulf News just told me that Dubai has banned the Bollywood film "God Tussi Great Ho" because it violates Islamic teachings.

Why? Well they tell us:

God Tussi Great Ho is the story of Arun Prajapati (Salman Khan) who loses his balance in life, his job, his girl (Priyanka Chopra) and for all his losses, he blames "god". With all his bickering, "god" decides to meet Arun face to face. He endows Arun with all of his divine powers, challenges Arun to take on the big job and see if he can do it any better.

(The quotation marks, by the way, are all Gulf News).

Um, wasn't this the premise of "Bruce Almighty" like, five years ago?

Man, I think Tom Shadyac gonna sue somebody!

So, for those of you who lived in Dubai in 2003, was "Bruce Almighty" banned, too?

And, more importantly, do you think there'll be a sequel to "God Tussi Great Ho" starring a completely tertiary character who has all of one minute of screen time in the original film? 'Cause that'd be awesome.
