The makers and cast of the film Carry On Jatta 3 landed in legal trouble as a written complaint was lodged against them at Jalandhar police station by the president of the Youth Committee of Shiv Sena Hind, Ishant Sharma and the Chairman of Punjab Shiv Sena (Taksali) Sunil Kumar Bunty.
“We filed a complaint on behalf of Shiv Sena Hind. In the film Carry On Jatta 3, which is aimed at Hindus, a Brahmin who is seen performing Havan rituals is humiliated in a scene. Gippy Grewal, Binnu Dhillon and Gurpreet Ghuggi have violated the faith of millions of Hindus by throwing water on the Havan Kund. Because in Hindu religion if any ritual has to be done, then Havan is performed first,” Chairman of Punjab Shiv Sena (Taksali), Sunil Kumar Bunty told ANI.
He added, "So, today, we have filed a complaint against all of them and demanded that section 295 be imposed on them for hurting religious sentiments. And if an attempt is made by them to spoil the atmosphere in Punjab. For that Section 153 should be imposed."
Sunil also said, "These individuals attempt to increase their TRP by targeting on the Hindu religion. They would have destroyed or set the theatre on fire if this had happened to another caste. Hinduism is a very soft religion. That's why we went to the government first. If they won't act within 24 hours, then the director Kang and Gurpreet Ghuggi's house is in Jalandhar only. We will be protesting outside their homes."
Meanwhile, Ishant Sharma, Youth committee president of Shiv Sena Hind, told ANI: "We saw the full film after people sent us the clip, and we came forward today. Our hearts are hurt that's why we came here to complain. If they believe this is inappropriate content, the scene is automatically deleted."
Directed by Smeep Kang, Carry On Jatta 3 is creating ripples at the Indian box office, which was made under a controlled budget. Interestingly, the film has already emerged as a huge commercial hit, which is now aiming for much bigger total in lifetime run.
Carry On Jatta threequel stars Gippy Grewal, Sonam Bajwa, Binnu Dhillon, Kavita Kaushik and others in key roles. It’s the third instalment in the highly successful comedy franchise Carry On Jatta.
