Jabalpur, Jul 7: Madhya Pradesh High Court here today issued notices to the Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and three others on a petition demanding stay to the screenings of the film ‘Delhi Belly' for its alleged obscenity and use of abusive language.
The notices were issued by the division bench of Justices Vimla Jain and K K Lahoti on the petition filed by Dr Ajay Seth. Replies are to be filed by July 12.
Besides Aamir, other respondents are Censor Board and Madhya Pradesh Chief Secretary.
Petitioner says that the people, especially the youth, treat Aamir as “God of the acting world” and he has made a number of inspirational films.
However, Delhi Belly, which he has produced, is obscene and has abusive language which is “against the Indian culture”, petition says.
The petition also says that the Censor Board has cleared the picture despite some “blue-film” like scenes. PTI
