Aamir has been booked for obscenity, but is it justified?
A lawyer today moved court against Bollywood star Aamir Khan and a Hindi daily for publishing an “obscene” poster of his upcoming movie PK.
Advocate Manoj Kumar has alleged that the film’s poster, which has the perfectionist Khan almost nude with an old tape-recorder used as a prop, covering his front would incite “sexual violence” and encourage “obscenity”.
“When I received a copy of the newspaper I was shocked with the poster. Newspaper reaches crores of people, including children and the elderly,” says Kumar. The case has been filed in the court of additional city magistrate VII under section 292 of the IPC (Indian Penal Code), which deals with obscenity. August 7 has been set as the next date of hearing.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, PK stars Aamir, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput. The film is set to release on December 19, during Christmas this year. But the first look is already creating a lot of buzz.
Well, we aren’t really surprised coz after looking at that poster, we and surely Aamir certainly saw this coming. What do you think BollywoodLifers, is this court case justified?
