A bench comprising Justice A.R. Masoodi and Justice N.K. Jauhri passed the order on the PIL moved by Karni Sena’s vice president Sangeeta Singh.
The petition sought a ban on the release of the movie, alleging it was presenting a ‘wrong and vulgar’ picture of Prithviraj, a Hindu emperor, and hence it hurt sentiments.
The petitioner said the preview of the movie ‘Prithviraj’ itself shows that it is controversial.
‘Prithviraj’ is an Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chhillar starrer Hindi film.
This is the second time that the Karni Sena is opposing the release of a film.
