Paswan questions ban on film

NEW DELHI: With ‘Deshdrohi,’ a film based on north Indians migrating to Mumbai creating a controversy in Maharashtra, Lok Janshakti Party leader and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan has questioned the banning of the film in the State despite getting Censor Board clearance.

“What is the harm in screening the film? It has got clearance from the Censor Board. No other State has banned it,” he said at a press conference here.

Mr. Paswan said he had seen some promotions on television channels and found nothing provocative in them. The Maharashtra government has imposed a two-month ban on the film fearing backlash from the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and others if it was allowed to be released in the present format.

The Maharashtra police had asked the film’s writer, producer and actor Kamaal Khan for a separate screening before the film’s release. - PTI
