With just three days ahead for the release, Kamal Hassan's much publicised movie Dasavatharam caught in trouble again. A petition is being moved at the Supreme Court on Monday for a stay on the film's release which is scheduled for June 13th worldwide.
The petition was filed by R. Bakthavatsalam and Swami Govinda Ramanuja Dasa from Chennai. According to the petitioners, the film would hurt the religious sentiments of 50 crore Vaishnavites if the screening of the movie was not stayed, it would create a law and order problem.
"The film Dasavatharam projects violent clashes between Saivites and Vaishnavites hurting the religious feelings and sentiments of entire Hindu community," the petition alleged, challenging a Madras High Court order allowing the screening of the film.
The petition was based on clippings of the movie shown in a private Tamil television channel.
