Bhimashankar Patil, the President of Karnataka Navnirman Sene, filed a petition to ban Silk Sakkath Hot from screening. The case came before the court on Wednesday (August 7) and it passed the order for a temporary ban on the Kannada movie.
According to the petitioner, Silk Sakkath Hot projects women in a bad taste, and there are vulgar scenes in the movie in the name of sensuous sequences. The film sends a bad message to the society and allowing such films for screening will harm the society.
He also claimed that the posters of the film are as bad as the movie, and it should be removed with immediate effect. Responding to his plea, the court gave a temporary ban on the movie till August 10. It has served notices to producer Venkatappa, director Trishul and actors Akshay and Veena Malik.
The court has asked the makers of the film to appear before the court on August 8 for further hearing. It has to be noted that Silk Sakkath Hot has been cleared by Regional Censor Board with 'A' certificate.
Industry Men Surprised
Industry insiders are surprised by the decision as it will affect the film badly. A trader questioned on the condition of anonymity, "How could the court halt the screening of Silk Sakkath Hot when Regional Censor Board has cleared the movie?"

It can be remembered here that a similar kind of situation was faced by Tamil movie Vishwaroopam earlier this year.
On the other end, the court's decision has come as a shocker to the audience. The film has been getting a massive response from audience from the day it was released on August 2.
Too Hot To Handle!
Silk Sakkath Hot has a lot of intimate scenes between Veena Malik and Akshay. The Pakistani girl has done never-before scenes in the Kannada movie.
