PIL Filed Against Movie Tiger Sultan: A Public Interest Litigation had been filed by a resident of Somajiguda in High Court against some abusive dialogues.
A resident of Hyderabad had filed a Public Interest litigation against the movie ‘Tiger Sultan’ in High court.
According to the sources K Sekhar who was a resident of Somajiguda filed a PIL in high court alleging that the movie contains abusive and violent language in local Urdu.
The writ petition that was filed by Sekar contended that the movie Tiger Sultan has abusive dialogues that are objectionable and hurt religious sentiments which can be viewed on the trailer that was released on YouTube by the movie team.
The petition stated that ”Under the garb of using Hyderabadi Urdu dialect, they have used words like Maa Ki Kirkiri, which degrades the status of a mother. Youth and kids are attracted to these dialogues and use them. There is another phrase, Mandir ki Ghanti, that hurts religious sentiments. There is a scene depicting chain snatching training, which will instigate the youth to take up criminal activities. The trailer also depicts children as followers of the hero who would commit offences. The filmmakers have projected this film as depicting Hyderabadi culture, but it is nothing but an act of degradation. The Censor Board is not discharging its duties properly”.
The news report adds that Sekar has named the ministry of information and broadcasting, Central Board of Film Certification, Minar film productions and actor Toufeeq Khan, director Sanjay Punjabi and scriptwriter Salman Haider in order to respond to the PIL
