FIR against Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani for hurting religious sentiments

A case has been lodged against the Dhoom:3 star and the Munnabhai director in the capital for allegedly hurting religious sentiments during the shooting of P.K.

It seems filing FIR and Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against filmmakers and actors in the name of religious sentiments has become a trend in Bollywood off late. Ask Sanjay Leela Bhansali whose upcoming flick Ram-Leela had been through legal trouble for the same reason recently.

As per the latest buzz, a FIR was lodged against Aamir Khan, director Rajkumar Hirani and other actors of the under-production film P.K. for allegedly hurting religious sentiments during the shooting of the film in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk area. Reason? The locals objected to a shooting sequence in which a man dressed as Lord Shiva was seen pulling a rickshaw with two burqa-clad women sitting as passengers.

The cop questioned the cast and crew about the matter and the three actors were taken to Kotwali police station. The mob reached the police station and started shouting slogans protesting against the actors and the director. In their defense, the P.K. actors said they had all the legal documents and permission for shooting.

Accordingly, the police lodged an FIR under section 295 A (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religious of any class) and 153 A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) (promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language) against the actors,” said a police official.
