Shahid Kapoor's latest release Kaminey has run into trouble with a religious group filing an FIR against the makers of the film for allegedly denigrating Lord Jagannath in the film.
Jagannath Sena Sangathan has filed an FIR against production house UTV Motion Pictures Ltd and director Vishal Bhardwaj at a police station in Puri for showing Lord Jagannath in a poor light in their latest film Kaminey starring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
The Sangathan staged a protest in Puri and submitted a memorandum before the state governor through the district collector. The police said that a case has been lodged against the makers of Kaminey following the allegation that some scenes in the film have hurt the sentiments of Jagannath devotees. It added that investigation on the matter is on.
The devotees of Lord Jagannath are not happy with a scene in the film where it has been written Apna Hath Jagannath in the toilet with a semi-clad model under the writing. They alleged that it has hurt their sentiments. Meanwhile, the objectionable scene has been deleted from the prints released in the state.
