The Supreme court had passed its verdict much before the film released
Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma's PK has been amidst many controversies in the recent past. Where on one hand the film has received a raving response from the audience owing to its unique concept and implementation, on the other, it has been a victim of legal trouble.It all began with Aamir Khan's nude pose on the first poster of PK where he held only a transistor in one hand, to cover his private parts. The actor's stint was termed as obscene and vulgar, and the posters were demanded to be removed from the stands.
Next came in an NGO called All India Human Rights and Social Justice Front, which stated that the film contains certain sequences which are bound to hurt religious and spiritual sentiments of the people, and hence should be banned. This incident was followed by an FIR being lodged against the film's producers Rajkumar Hirani and Sidharth Roy Kapur, by , Secretary of Hindu Legal Cell called Prashant Patel. Reports suggest that he filed an FIR as he believed that the makers of PK have portrayed the Hindu Gods, especially Lord Shiva, in a negative way.
But what's interesting is that the Supreme Court earlier had come to the film's aid, clearly stating that there was no need to ban the film at all. SC had rejected the plea to ban the film, and instead asked viewers to "not watch the film," if they had qualms with its sentiment and presentation!
"If you don't like it, don't watch the film. Don't bring religious facets here," said Cheif Justice Of India RM Lodha. He further added saying," These are matters of entertainment. If you restrict it, it will affect others' rights. Everything is on the internet. What will you hide?"
Where many social organizations seem to have problems with the presentation and the message of the film, the SC has brought forth a completely different point of view!
An important angle for many to consider, don't you think BollywoodLifers?
