The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday slammed the makers of Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan-starrer Adipurush directed by Om Raut for its objectionable portrayal of religious characters including Lord Rama and Lord Hanuman, Sita.
The latest development comes after the court heard a set of petitions against Om Raut’s magnum opus. A DNA report quoted the court saying, “The kind of dialogues that are there in the film... it's a big issue. Ramayana is an example for the people. It is venerated. People step out of their homes after reading the Ramcharitmanas.”
The bench also slammed the Censor Board asking what steps it had taken before the release of Adipurush. The court said, “Some things should not have been tinkered with.”
"Agar hum log iss par bhi aankh band kar len kyonki yeh kaha jaata hai ki yeh dharm ke log bade sahishnu gain, toh kya uska test liya jayega? (Should we close our eyes just because it is said that people of a particular religion are said to be tolerant? Is this a test of tolerance?" the court added.
It also maintained, “It was good that the people did not harm law and order after watching the film.” Earlier, High Court had asked "What is it that the censor board keeps doing? What do you want to teach the future generations?"
The court also questioned why the producer, director, and other parties were absent during the hearing.
