Sadak 2 Faces Legal Trouble, It’s Said To Hurt The Feelings Of Hindu Community

Leela Adwani |Jul 09, 2020

Recently a complaint has been filed against the "Sadak 2" crew at a Maharajganj court for hurting sentiments of the Hindu community in their poster.

Sadak 2 has always been one of the most anticipated films of the year. Helmed by Mahesh Bhatt, the film features an all-star ensemble cast including Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, and Aditya Roy. No prize for guessing, Sadak 2 has created quite a buzz ever since it was first introduced on Alia Bhatt's social media account. All eyes are all the release of the film and of course, every new update becomes the talk of the town.

However, recently a complaint has been filed against the Sadak 2 film crew at a Maharajganj court for hurting sentiments of the Hindu community in their poster.

The complaint has been lodged under IPC Sections 295A (deliberately outraging religious feelings) and 120B (criminal conspiracy). Judicial Magistrate Saurabh Pandey has fixed September 8 as the date of hearing in the case. In his complaint, Pandey said in the film poster, the Mount Kailash has been shown below the names of the movie, director, producer and actor.  

The advocate said in his complaint that the name of the film got more importance than the mountain and it hurts the Hindu community’s feeling.

The poster for Sadak 2 was released during a press conference recently. Alia had read out a note written by Mahesh which stated the reason for including Mount Kailash in the poster. The note read that Mount Kailash is an ageless mountain that has footprints of Gods and sages. The mountain is an abode for Lord Shiva, who is the God of gods, thus the poster did not require any other actor in the poster, according to him. 

For those who are unversed, the film is set to have a digital release. Jointly produced by Fox Star Studios and Vishesh Films, the film was initially slated to hit the screens on 10 July but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the film is heading to stream on Disney+ Hotstar.

The film which is the sequel of 1991 hit Sadak marks the return of Bollywood veteran Mahesh Bhatt as a director after two decades. The film revolves around the depression of Ravi and how he helps a woman encounter with a godman.

Sadak 2 officially went on floors on May 18, 2019, and was shot in several locations including Mumbai, Ooty, Mysore, and Uttarakhand.

The project was first introduced by Alia Bhatt on her Twitter handle on September 20, 2018. It seems like the release date is yet to come but the film already faces some trouble.
