Mallika Sherawat’s raunchy dresses have always been the talk of the town. But this time around, the lady is in trouble for dishonoring the national flag.
The Central Board of Film Certification, the Union home ministry and Mallika Sherawat, all have been issued notices for having dishonored the national flag.
In the first look poster of the film ‘Dirty Politics’, Mallika Sherawat’s upcoming film, the actress is showed sitting atop a car draped in the national flag. A part of the national flag goes below her waist.
Human rights activist Mr T. Dhangopal Rao had moved the Hyderabad High Court seeking action against Mallika Sherawat.
“The film poster shows Mallika sitting atop a car fitted with a beacon and wrapped in tricolour below her waist. Offended by it, I filed the petition seeking action against the actress,” Rao said.
In response to the PIL filed by Rao, a bench comprising Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta and Justice PV Sanjay Kumar of the Hyderabad High Court issued notices to the Central Board of Film Certification, the Union home ministry and Mallika Sherawat.
In his PIL, Roa alleged that the actress and film producer Kastoor Chand Bokadia had intentionally humiliated the national flag in the poster of the film, Dirty Politics.
He has further sought that the court should restrict the producer from further displaying and using the poster as part of the film’s promotion.
The Court has directed the respondents to put forward their stance through counter affidavits. The case has been adjourned for six weeks.
