As we know that in the coming days, there is a debate heeding films. Controversy has also arisen regarding actor Akshay Kumar’s new upcoming film Prithviraj.
Recently, the Allahabad High Court in Lucknow has asked the central government whether the Censor Board has provided a certificate for the release of the film Prithviraj.
Censor Board – the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is a statutory film-certification body in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India. It was given the task of regulating films under the provisions of the Cinematograph Act 1952. Films to be screened in cinemas and on television can be shown publicly in India only after they have been certified and edited by the Board.
A few days back, the court has ordered the hearing of a PIL seeking a stay on the release of Akshay’s upcoming movie Prithviraj from the film today. The matter is likely to come up for hearing from February 21.
Justice A.R. Masoodi and Justice N.K. Jauhri has given this order in response to a PIL filed by Karni Sena Vice President Sangeeta Singh.
The petitioner said that the film presents a ‘false and obscene image of a Hindu ruler, Prithviraj, which is beyond reality. Such films hurt the sensibilities of the people. The trailer of the film shows the derogatory image of Prithviraj. This is a controversial film.
In 2017, the Karni Sena had protested against Padmavati, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone. Due to this, he had to change the name of the movie from Padmavati to Padmavat. This is the second time that Karni Sena is objecting to a film. However, due to broad disclosure, the release date of the film has been pushed.
