However, the film Haider also witnessed some
controversy and criticisms for supposedly hurting Hindu sentiments
and showing Indian Army in a bad light.
A PIL was filed against Vishal Bhardwaj's film Haider
demanding ban on screening of the movie on grounds that the film is
against national interest.
In response to the PIL filed, the Allahabad High Court has now
issued a notice to the makers of Shahid Kapoor starrer
Haider, along with a copy to the Central Board of Film
Certification to provide their reply within four weeks.
Hindu Front for Justice, a group of local lawyers filed a PIL
against the film alleging that the movie hurts Hindu sentiments as

In addition, the PIL also claimed that the film portrayed the
Indian Army in a bad light as the movie allegedly suggests that the
Indian Army carried out attrocities on the Kashmiris.
The group not only demanded a ban on screening of the film but
also urged the Court to initiate criminal proceedings against the
director of Haider, script writers and actors for alleged
act of sedition.
Now, the Court has asked the makers of Haider which happens to be Shahid Kapoor's best ever film, to come up with a reply within four weeks.
