Finally, some relief for PK team as Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed a PIL filed against Aamir Khan’s PK by saying, “the film was not offensive”. The plea to ban film “PK”, directed by Rajkumar Hirani on the grounds of hurting Hindu beliefs, faith and sentiments, was not entertained by the division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice R.S. Endlaw.
“What was wrong in the movie? We don’t find anything offensive in it. We don’t find any substance in the plea,” said the bench. The court will pass a detailed order on the plea later.
Gautam, who filed the PIL, argued that the Aamir Khan’s film “PK” showed Lord Shiva in a bad light and made mockery of Hindu gods.
“The Hindu way of worship has also been criticised in a most unwarranted manner,” Gautam alleged.
Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain appearing for the Centre opposed the plea, saying similar matter came before the Supreme Court which had rejected it.
Aamir Khan’s “PK” has been dragged under controversies since day one and has been targeted by the right-wing organisations, saying that the film have hurt religious sentiments.
Nonetheless, Rajkumar Hirani’s “PK” keeps soaring higher and higher. The film succeeded in breaking major records and impressing the critics as well as the audiences.
