Complaint filed against Alia Bhatt-Mahesh Bhatt for 'hurting Hindu sentiments' with 'Sadak 2' poster?


After much wait, the poster of Mahesh Bhatt's directorial comeback film Sadak 2 was unveiled a while ago. Featuring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in the lead roles, fans of the actors were left excited. However, soon after the poster was released, a complaint has been reportedly filed in a court in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, against Sadak 2 for hurting religious sentiments. According to reports, the use of Kailash Parvat on the image has not gone down well with the complainant.

As per reports, the complaint was lodged by Acharya Chandra Kishore Parashar, a resident of Sikandarpur locality of the town. In response to this, Chief Judicial Magistrate, Mukesh Kumar, has fixed July 8 as the next date of hearing. The case is said to be lodged under IPC sections 295A (deliberately outraging religious feelings) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
