Upcoming Bollywood social melodrama 31st October is set to release shortly. But the controversy surrounding the film doesn’t seem to end as yet. Ajay Katara, the plaintiff, has moved to the honourable Delhi High Court seeking stay order on the film before its release. But the court refused to entertain the same.
A bench headed by Chief Justic G Rohini opined that petitioner Ajay Katara should have approached the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) first before dragging the Court into this matter. 31st October is a Bollywood film which revolves around the 1984 turmoil following Indira Gandhi’s assassination.
What the Petition Seeking Ban on 31st October Says
The petition argued that certain scenes in the movie could create chaos in the country; hence they should be removed before its release. It also further added that certain words used in the films are of offending nature and targeted at slamming a particular person. The film features well-known actors including Vir Das and Soha Ali Khan.
