Mumbai: It seems that Student Of The Year director Karan Johar and producer Gauri Khan are going to have some tough time for allegedly hurting religious sentiments in their film’s song. An FIR has been launched against duo for addressing Radha as ‘sexy’ in their latest release.
The complaint was lodged by a local NGO, Shrivision Social Empowerment and Welfare Association. Police filed the complaint in agreement with a magisterial court.
The NGO raised objection on the ground that a mythological figure like Radha should not be addressed with inappropriate words like ‘sexy’.
Superintendent of Police O P Tripathi in a statement said that FIR was lodged last night under section 295 (A) (hurting religious sentiments) of Indian Penal Code.
Reportedly, the complaint includes director Johar, producer Gauri Khan, Dharma Productions House, lyricist Anveta Dutta Soni Music, lyricist Anveta Dutta, composers Vishal-Shekhar, singers Shreya Ghosal and Udit Narayan, and the actors Alia Bhatt, Sidharath Malhotra and Varun Dhawan.
