A complaint has been filed in Muzaffarpur court against filmmakers Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt and actress Alia Bhatt. They have been accused of hurting Hindu sentiments through the poster of their upcoming film ‘Sadak 2’.

As per a PTI report Acharya Chandra Kishore Parashar, a resident of Sikandarpur, has filed the complaint against the makers of ‘Sadak 2’, through his advocate Sonu Kumar.

The case has been lodged under IPC sections 295A (deliberately outraging religious feelings) and 120B (criminal conspiracy). The complaint has expressed his displeasure over the use of the image of Kailash Mansarovar in ‘Sadak 2’s poster. The report further stated that Chief Judicial Magistrate, Mukesh Kumar, has fixed July 08 as the next date of hearing in this case.

Interestingly, earlier explaining Mahesh’s idea behind featuring just Mount Kailash on the poster, Alia had said, “Mount Kailash, the ageless mountain, has the footprints of gods and sages. It is the abode of god of all gods, Lord Shiva. So do we really need anything else? Or actors in that sacred space? Since the beginning of time, humanity found its shelter in Kailash. This is a place where all search ends. ‘Sadak 2’ is a Road to love. This sequel to ‘Sadak’ will take you on the mother of all love pilgrimages.”

‘Sadak 2’ is the sequel of 1990’s ‘Sadak’ that featured Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt in the lead role. Interestingly both of them will also be seen in the sequel. Aditya Roy Kapur is also a part this Mahesh Bhatt directorial. Neither Alia nor Mahesh has responded to the accusations of hurting religious sentiments yet.
