New Delhi: The Bombay High Court will hear a plea filed against the release of movie Kedarnath on Thursday, news agency ANI reported. In the plea, petitioners have sought that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should reassess the movie because it hurts religious sentiments.
The petitioner has also demanded that the movie should not be released till CBFC clears it again. Another petition was filed in the Uttarakhand High Court against the movie, accusing it of hurting sentiments of Hindus.
The PIL filed by Swami Darshan Bharti had alleged that the movie is an “ugly taint” on the Hindu shrine. One of the allegations in the PIL is that Lord Kedarnath has been insulted in the film.
The PIL also claims that the movie trailer shows that Muslims have been residing in the area for ages while there are no residents from the community in the area. The Sushant Singh Rajput-Sara Ali Khan starring is scheduled to be released later this month.
The film is a love story set in the backdrop of the flash floods that wrecked the temple town in June of 2013. It showcases the beautiful love story of Mansoor and Mukku who struggle to survive the wrath of nature.
The movie is all set to hit the screens on December 7, 2018. The film marks the debut of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter, Sara.
