The News Minute | February 12, 2015 | 7:35 pm IST Dera Sacha Sauda sect leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim seems to have cast a spell on his fans with his controversial¬†debut movie "MSG - The Messenger of God" attracting a lot of people waiting for its release. MSG was earlier scheduled to be released on Jan 16 but did not get the CBFC approval in time. The film had run into trouble earlier with the CBFC refusing to give it clearance for release and referring the case to the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT). The FCAT approved the release of the film. This led to CBFC chairperson Leela Samson resigning from her post. However, as the movie is a day away from releasing, fans took to twitter to express their love for the 'guru.' #1DayToMSG @MSGTheFilm 's lovers are going too crazy...Waiting for last few hours #LoveToSeeMSG13feb pic.twitter.com/neM6nPe9Oc ‚ÄĒ Dr. Payal Sachdeva (@Drpayal_1289) February 12, 2015 @Gurmeetramrahim #LoveToSeeMSG13feb #1DayToMSG finalllyyy d rockinggg dayy is aboutt too come .. d whole wrld is wtng forr ‚ÄĒ pariÓźė(#iSupportMSG) (@giftyinsan) February 12, 2015 @Gurmeetramrahim Cong's pitaji for your 200 tweets#1DayToMSGpic.twitter.com/hratzNhwDT ‚ÄĒ golden insan (@GoldenInsan) February 12, 2015 The #Bollywood #Blockbuster of the 2015 Releasing Get Ready 4 #MSG Now Just #1DayToMSG#LoveToSeeMSG13feb@MSGTheFilm pic.twitter.com/9YfO8coqZH ‚ÄĒ #iSupportMSGinPunjab (@iSupportMSG) February 12, 2015 #1DayToMSG trends in India instead of #WorldCup2015 tells it all.

Sikh organisations and leaders, including the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal, are opposed to the sect and its leader. Police had also detained scores of Indian National Students' Organisation activists in Gurgaon that were protesting against the film. A 2 min song from the movie has also been released which can be viewed below. ¬† Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
