A case has been lodged in the Delhi High Court to stop the release of upcoming film ‘31st October’. The film has starcast Soha Ali Khan and Vir Das in the lead roles.
The film talks about how Indira Gandhi murder was held by the accused in 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
The PIL said, ‘The movie is an attack on the secular fabric of India and and is contrary to the ideology of the country’s oldest political party.”
It added that, “From whatever little is shown on trailers, it is clear that the action and words used by the characters are of offending nature; they have all ingredients to tarnish the reputation of such persons. Apart from the fact that same can’t stand the test of fair comment or that of social interest, they appear to be provocative.”
Ajay Katara has lodged a complaint against the film as it contains some nasty content. There are several scenes in the film that is against a political figure of the country.
The plea said, “The political figure has been painted in bad light in the film. That movie has transgressed the right of expression, in as much as a particular person has been targetted so as to invite contempt and hatred against him.”
