Court moved against ban on film

Legal Correspondent

New Delhi: The producer of Hindi film ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ has moved the Supreme Court challenging the ban imposed by the States of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Uttarakhand on screening the film.

On Monday, a Bench of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justice R.V. Raveendran agreed to include the matter on Tuesday in the ‘mentioning list’ when the filing of the petition was mentioned to the court for an urgent hearing.

The producer, UTV Software Communication, in its petition said the ban was causing a financial loss. Around Rs.41 crore were spent in making the film and another Rs.4 crore on publicity.
