    The Madras High Court has ordered to send notice to producer Oscar Ravichandran, script writer cum hero of the film Kamal Hassan and director Ravikumar on a writ petition filed by a Hindu Religious Organization.

    The petition also seeks a direction to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to remove scenes, which hurt the sentiments of Hindus in the Tamil film Dasavatharam while issuing the Censorship Certificate.

    In its petition, the International Sri Vaishnava Dharma Samrakshanaa Society, represented by its president, Swami Govinda Ramanuja Dasa, said the title Dasavatharam was a sign of insulting Hinduism.

    He also pointed out that the trailer of the film contains some offensive scenes such as clash between Saivites and Vaishnavites. In a scene, they picturised one of the characters put his leg on God's idol and it is certainly an insult to the religious sentiments.

    The petitioner submitted that his grievance was restricted to the role played by the actor as Sri Ramanujar and the connected scenes of violence.

    Since the release date is nearing, Oscar Ravi is making efforts to calm down the situation.
