‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ lands in trouble “disrespecting Indian army”

BizAsia Correspondent



Aamir Khan’s much talked about new release ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has landed into trouble again after being accused of “disrespecting the Indian army” and “hurting Hindu sentiments”.

A Delhi-based lawyer submitted a complaint to Delhi Police commissioner Sanjay Arora against Khan, Paramount Pictures and several others. Advocate Vineet Jindal alleged there was objectionable content in the ‘Forrest Gump’ remake.

Jindal told ETimes, “In the movie, the makers have depicted that a mentally challenged person was allowed to join Army to fight in the Kargil War. It is a well-known fact that the best army personnel were sent to fight the Kargil war and rigorously trained army personnel fought the war but the movie makers intentionally depicted the said situation to demoralise and defame the Indian army.”
