HC OK with 'Kedarnath', but Uttarakhand bans it

Kedarnath: Bombay High Court's 'NOC' couldn't save Sara Ali Khan's debut movie from getting banned in 7 Uttarakhand districts

Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Kedarnath was banned in many Uttrakhand districts due to the controversial storyline. Interestingly, this film marks Sara Ali Khan's foray into Bollywood.

Following this, all the DM's have banned the film's release in their districts. "The movie is banned everywhere in state".

The district magistrates of Nainital and Udham Singh Nagar had on Thursday imposed a ban on the screening of the film. The Gujarat High court called the action a publicity stunt and the extreme Hindu outfits are making it a big issue.

Talking about the prospects of the film at the box office before its release, film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi had told Hindustantimes.com, "On the business front, Kedarnath should bring around Rs 5 crore on day one and then it would entirely depend on the merit of the film's content". Legal representatives of the movie's producers as well as the Censor Board opposed the petition, which contended that Kedarnath's story is imaginary and an "untrustworthy tale of love" between a Muslim youth and a Brahmin girl.

In Kedarnath, Sushant essays the role of a cheerful and hard-working Muslim pithoo who carries the devotees on his back to the Kedarnath shrine for livelihood, while Sara essays the role of a bubbly Hindu devotee who falls in love with her bearer. Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Ashok Kumar said the film has been banned in seven districts, reported PTI.

State Congress spokesperson Garima Mehra Dasauni said that while the Congress is in favour of promoting shooting in Uttarakhand, it is important to ensure that the said movie does not hurt religious sentiments.
