One of the much-awaited film of 2019, ‘Bharat’ which stars actor Salman Khan in lead is set to release on Eid 2019 but ahead of the film release, the film has hit a low.
In a recent, a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) was filed in Delhi’s High Court on Thursday seeking a change of the title of the movie ‘Bharat’
As per the petitioner named Vikas Tyagi, the movie is “distorting the culture and political image of our great country Bharat.” In his plea, Tyagi had asserted that the title of the film is a violation of section 3 of Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper use) Act. According to that, the word Bharat cannot be used for commercial purpose.
He had also sought change in one of the dialogues of the film where the character has been compared to the country. He claimed that it hurts the patriotic sentiments of the people of the country.
“This film is fraught with Salman’s typical flippancy and vulgarity. Being a ‘Bharatiya’, I feel it is not appropriate to name such film or any character associated with this film after our great nation,” Tyagi said
Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film stars Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Nora Fatehi, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover and Jackie Shroff.
The movie is slated for a release on June 5.
