New Delhi : The Delhi High Court today disposed off the petition seeking stay on the release of Boman Irani, Veer Das-starrer ‘Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd’ and directed the Central Board of Film Certification to treat the petition as representation.
The PIL filed by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee alleged that the movie was projecting the personality of Sikh community in defamatory and denigrating manner, which could cause “disturbance” in the society.
The government and the Censor Board though told that there is nothing objectionable in the movie, which makes fun of the Sikh community.
‘Santa Banta Pvt Ltd’ producers and director were against any reconsideration of the certificate by the government or any such direction by the court, saying this would amount to questioning the board’s decision, which took a call after seeing the movie.
They even added that the petitioners objected even before watching the movie. (ANI)
