Son of Sardar Controversy – Plea before Bombay High court seeking stay on release of movie

November 1, 2012 | By

Nagpur, India (November 01, 2012): The controversy surrounding various portions of upcoming Hindi Movie “Son of Sardar” continues to cast shadows on the forthcoming release of the movie as there are reports that two lawyers have approached the Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court against movie’s producer Devgn, Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairperson Leela Samson, and five others, urging the court to stay the release of film.

Other respondents in the case include union information and broadcasting minister, state home ministry, National Commission for Minorities chairman Wajahat Habibullah, Nagpur commissioner of police and inspector of Jaripatka police station.

The petitioners, Jatinderpal Singh Uppal and Taranjeet Singh Himmat Singh Bevali, have reportedly raised objects to various dialogues and scenes in the movie claiming that these potions in the movie show the Sikhs in poor light.

According to a Times of India (TOI) news report the Counsel for the petitioners Kamal Satuja said that Devgn, who portrays the character of a young Sardar in the film, had mouthed some very obscene and indecent things about the community.

He reportedly claimed that Ajay Devgn, who is playing a lead role in the movie, is shown as a joker and an insane fellow who becomes an object of ridicule.

“Hearing on the petition was scheduled on Thursday before the bench comprising justices Pratap Hardas and AR Joshi, but then it was deferred by the court registry” reports Times of India (TOI).
