Adipurush has been one of the top controversies in India since its release. Due to the portrayal of Hindu gods and goddesses, the people of India are extremely upset with the makers of the film.
As a case against the makers of the film was filed in the Allahabad high court, the court finally summoned the makers of the film. The makers of Adipurush are directed to appear before the court on July 27th.
In addition to that, the high court has also directed the central government to form a committee and give unbiased views on the controversial aspects of the film.
The committee formed by the central government of India will consist of five members. These five members will together give their views on the film and decide whether the film has hurt the sentiments of the people of India. The committee will also decide whether the film has disrespected Hinduism and its culture in any way.
In addition, the court has also ordered the government to review its decision of giving a certificate to the movie allowing its release in the theatres. The court’s orders and summons were posted on Allahabad high court’s official website on Friday.
Who filed the case against the makers of the film?
Two people named Kuldeep Tiwari and Naveen Dhawan had filed separate cases that sought a ban on the movie Adipurush. A vacation bench consisting of Justice Shree Prakash Singh and Justice Rajesh Singh Chauhan was handling two separate petitions by the two men.
As a result of these cases, the court finally ordered the filmmakers to appear before the court. The Allahabad high court has ordered producer Bhushan Kumar, director Om Raut, and dialogue writer Manoj Muntashir to be present in the court on July 27th.
After hearing the views of the five-member committee, the CBFC, and the makers of the film, the court will decide whether the film has truly hurt the sentiments of the people of India. Whether the movie gets banned remains to be seen.
