According to sources, reports claim that he did a scene, where
he was seen drinking alcohol. The scene was shown without the
so-called warning message. So, the case has been charged against
the actor for doing it without showing the message.
Prithviraj played a 45 year-old police officer in his movie
7th Day. He was playing an investigating officer who tries
to find out the culprits of a murder within seven days. The movie
is a superhit one and is still getting rave reviews.
It is rule imposed by the authorities that a warning message
saying 'consumption of alcohol is injurious to health' should be
shown when any such scenes with liquor is shown anywhere in the
film or on Television. Usually all scenes, be it in a seriel or a
film, a skit or an ad, has to show this message if alcohol
consumption is shown.
Excise claims that one of the shots in the film where Prithviraj
was seen drinking alcohol did not show the warning message. Now,
they have filed the case against the actor. Prithviraj has not made
any comment on this as of now.
