As if Shiv Sena's protest against the posters of the movie Kurbaan wasn't enough the Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan starer movie had to face another controversy. An unknown person named Mohammed Ali had filed a PIL in the Bombay High Court for two songs in the movie claiming that it has hurt the religious sentiments of the Muslims. Ali had demanded that the release of the movie be held unless it removed the two objectionable songs.
In his petition Mohammed Ali has stated that the two songs 'Ali Maula ' and 'Shukran Allah' whose lyrics are very religious have been obscenely shot hurting the sentiments of the Muslims. The court declined to stay release of film Kurbaan but sought the responses of producer Karan Johar, director Rensil D'Silva and actors Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor. The case will come up for next hearing on January 14.
