The High Court has reprimanded the makers amidst the controversy going on across the country regarding ‘Adipurush’ directed by Om Raut. High Court has also expressed its displeasure for the Censor Board. During the hearing on the petition filed regarding Adipurush, the division bench of Justice Rajesh Singh Chauhan and Justice Sriprakash Singh in the High Court asked what do you want to teach to the next generation?
Advocate Ranjana Agnihotri informed the High Court about the objectionable facts and dialogues shown in the film while presenting her side during the debate in the court. On the other hand, while accepting the amendment application submitted by the High Court on June 22, the High Court asked the advocate Ashwini Singh, who appeared on behalf of the Censor Board, ‘What does the Censor Board keep doing? Cinema is the mirror of the society, what do you want to teach the future generations? Does the Censor Board not understand its responsibilities?
The court also said that ‘not only Ramayana but at least spare religious texts like Holy Quran, Guru Granth Sahib and Gita, rest are doing whatever they do’. The court also showed a strong stand on the absence of the film’s producer, director and other defendant parties in the court. Advocate Ranjana Agnihotri objected to the non-filing of reply by the Censor Board and informed the court about the objectionable facts of the film.
