Just hours after the first poster of Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s new film PK was released, an advocate from Kanpur filed a case against him and others related with the advertisement of the poster published in newspapers on Friday.
The case has been filed against promoters of the film, Aamir Khan, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani.
Claiming that the poster was obscene, advocate Manoj Kumar said it had terribly hurt his sentiments. “When I received a copy of the newspaper I was shocked with the poster. Newspaper reaches crores of people, including children and the elderly.”
The case has been filed in the court of additional city magistrate VII under section 292 of the IPC, which deals with obscenity.
