New Delhi: Om Raut directed film ‘Adipurush’ has now landed itself in legal trouble. A lawyer has filed a petition against filmmaker and actor Saif Ali Khan. The case is in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) in Jaunpur district of Uttar Pradesh. The court has fixed the next date of hearing on the matter on 23 December.
Civil court Advocate Himanshu Shrivastava on the behalf of the petitioner Upendra Vikram Singh has filed a petition under Sec 156(3) of the IPC.
According to the petitioner, he sincerely believes in “Sanatana Dharma” and in Hindu Religion, Ram is always considered Good and Ravan is considered Evil. And the defeat of Ravana marks the victory of good over evil and therefore “Dussehra” is celebrated.
Saif Ali Khan in the latest Press Conference said that Since Laxman ripped off Shrupankha’s(Sister of Ravana) nose, the kidnapping of Sita is justified.
He further said that “Adipurush” will focus on the side of Ravana that many don’t know i.e. the good side of Ravana.” Following the comments, he faced a stiff backlash from many groups and individuals on social media. Later, Saif Ali Khan apologized to the public saying that He didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s sentiments. Adipurush is an upcoming Indian Film that focuses on the Life of Lord Rama and the character of Saif Ali Khan in the movie is much similar to that of Ravana. But it seems with the ongoing controversy the film has already landed itself in trouble.
