Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Sanju’ in yet another legal trouble; this time for the prostitute dialogue
After a complaint was filed against the makers of Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Sanju’ over the toilet leaking scene that appeared in the trailer, now one more case is filed against the film. This time the case is filed against its actors Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, for allegedly making derogatory remarks on sex workers.
If you remember the trailer of ‘Sanju’ there is a scene where Anushka Sharma (who is writing a book on Sanjay Dutt in the film) is asking Ranbir Kapoor about the number of women he has slept with, to which he replies, “Prostitutes ko ginu ya unko alag? (should I include prostitutes or not)”. Now according to a report in News 18, complainants have approached the National Commission of Women over this particular scene. Apparently, the complainants are of the opinion that this dialogue demeans sex workers. (Also Read: Sanjay Dutt, Ranbir Kapoor, Manisha and others attend the special screening of ‘Sanju’)

Earlier, activist Prithvi Mhaske, raising an objection regarding the toilet leaking scene in the ‘Sanju’ trailer, had filed a complaint with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Mhaske’s letter to CBFC stated, “In the trailer of the movie we have seen a scene that Sanjay Dutt was in such a barrack of a jail in which the toilet overflowed. As per the information available, the government and jail authorities are taking very well care of all the barracks of the jails. We never heard any such incidents anywhere. Earlier as well many movies were released based on the gangsters wherein the jails were covered but never had seen such incidents. This particular scene will make a bad impression about the jails and jails authorities of the Indians.If there is no action about the same by you then we are left with no option to approach the honourable court to put stay on the release of the movie (sic).”
We wonder how many more people are going to file a case against this biopic which is all set to release tomorrow, June 29.
