Later, the Allahabad High Court admitted a PIL for a stay on the public exhibition of the film. Actor Salman Khan, director Anees Bazmee, Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and Secretary Information and Broadcasting have been made respondents in the petition.
Apparently they are now demanding on the deletion of the words in the satellite telecast and home video formats and also seeking a direction to cancel certification of the film that released about two weeks back. The song 'Character Dheela' from the film Ready, is sung by Neeraj Shridhar and written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Vinod Bhanushali, President, Marketing and Promotions, T-Series, who is a co-producer of the film stated to Mid Day, "The lyricist wrote the song keeping the situation in mind. He conceived the number considering Salman's character in the film. So how does Lord Krishna come into the picture here?"
Bhanushali asserted that his company wouldn't do anything that would hurt religious sentiments as they bring out the highest number of religious albums in the country. "We're not trying to depict Salman as Lord Krishna with gopis around him," he reiterated.
Following PIL against the Salman Khan and Zarine Khan starrer 'Character Dheela' song (film Ready), the controversial words like 'raas leela' might be removed from other formats of the film. Soon after the release of the movies, Chairman of Hindu Personal Law Board with a local lawyer raised an objection against the word 'raas leela' in the lyrics, saying that it is an attack on Hinduism.
