A complaint was filed before a court here on Thursday against filmmakers Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, besides actress Alia Bhatt, who has been accused of “hurting Hindu sentiments” through a poster of their upcoming venture “Sadak 2”.
The complaint was lodged by Acharya Chandra Kishore Parashar, a resident of Sikandarpur locality of the town, through his advocate Sonu Kumar.
Chief Judicial Magistrate, Mukesh Kumar, fixed July 08 as the next date of hearing in the case, lodged under IPC sections 295A (deliberately outraging religious feelings) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
The complainant has taken exception to the use of an image of Kailash Mansarovar in the poster of the movie, which is said to be a sequel of the 1990s blockbuster Sadak.
Produced by Mukesh Bhatt, the movie also marks the return of elder brother Mahesh as director after a hiatus of more than two decades.
Besides the director’s daughter Alia, the movie also stars his offspring from a previous marriage Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt, both of whom had played the lead pair in the 1991 release.
Of late, due to the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, a debate of nepotism, lobbying and camp-ism have been triggered. The whole Bhatt family is under the radar of the audience who are targeting them for the spread of nepotism. Alia Bhatt has been called a nepotism product and people have threatened to ban her films. Not only Alia but also of other celebs like Salman Khan, Brahmastra, Sooryavanshi among many other films.
Karan Johar is another industry person who has been a target of people. People are bashing the filmmaker all along, apparently, for taking a dig at Sushant. When the Chhichhore actor’s death news had been surfaced, Karan had posted a picture of himself with the actor, blaming himself for not reaching out.
