UTV wins case on Jodhaa Akbar ban in Madhya Pradesh


    MUMBAI: UTV has won its case against the Madhya Pradesh government on the state’s ban on Ashutosh Gowariker-directed film Jodhaa Akbar.

    The MP ban came soon after the movie was prohibited in Rajashtan. The movie will resume screening in MP with immediate effect.

    "The Madhya Pradesh High Court has ruled in favor of UTV and we are commencing the screening of Jodhaa Akbar immediately across the state," said UTV executive vice president marketing, communication and distribution Siddharth Roy Kapoor.

    He added, "This is a huge boost to all advocates of creative freedom in our country and we are very grateful to the court for recognizing the validity of our stand and allowing Jodhaa Akbar to resume screenings."
