Patna Court lifts ban on Mallika Sherawat’s ‘Dirty Politics’
Mallika Sherawat seems to be making headlines for the wrong reasons, yet again. After a gap of three years, she is starring in ‘Dirty Politics,’ which is already embroiled in controversies, even before its release.
It was reported yesterday that a the Patna Court had banned the film due to some offensive scenes enacted by Sherawat where she drapes the flag over her body, which is both an insult and dishonor to the Indian flag. A division bench had heard the petition against ‘Dirty Politics’ after which they banned the release of the film until the offensive scenes were edited out. They had also issued a notice to the Central Board of Film Certification for the same.
However, produced and director, KC Bokadia said, “I have informed the court that my film has no objectionable scenes.” Anil Kumar Sinha, who is Bokadia’s lawyer said that after the court lifted its earlier order, the film would be released as scheduled on Friday.
Sherawat has given a few hits, including the bold ‘Murder’ (2004) and also had an appearance in the hit crime drama, ‘Hawaii-Five-0,’ but this will be her attempt back into Bollywoood. ‘Dirty Politics’ will release on March 6th, and is directed by K.C. Bokadia, whose last film was Priyanka Chopra and Govinda starrer ‘Deewana Main Deewana’ in 2013.
