The Indore court dismissed a private complaint against Ajay Devgn today. In a petition, a city- based organisation alleged that a song from Devgn’s upcoming film Shivaay hurts religious feelings.
Judicial Magistrate Ashutosh Agrawal dismissed the petition against Devgn and Central Board of Film Certification chairman Pahlaj Nihalani.
The petitioner said the title song in the film shows scantily dressed woman in the song with the lyrics Har Har Mahdev, which hurts the religious feeling of Hindus and sought prosecution of Devgn and Nihalani under sections 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings) of IPC. The film is up for a October 28 release.
In the film, Ajay Devgn plays Shivaay, a Himalayan mountaineer, who has to fight bad men to protect his family. Shivaay also marks the actor’s return to direction eight years after his 2008 romantic drama U Me Aur Hum. The film also stars Sayyeshaa, Erika Kaar and Abigail Eames in pivotal roles.
The trailers, feature high-octane stunts in locations ranging from crowded cities to stunning and risky mountain roads in Europe and Asia.
