BENGALURU: A Kannada movie has found itself dragged into a controversy even before its release. After the launch of the movie trailer, members of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti have complained to the censor board and have demanded that objectionable scenes and other content should be removed from the movie.

The trailer of the Kannada movie ‘Sri Ramana Avatara’, directed by Vikas Pampavati and Vinay, was released recently and the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti has alleged that it disrespects Lord Ram and demanded to remove objectionable scenes from the movie. Several cases have also been booked at different police station.

Mohan Gowda, president of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, alleged that the film makers portrayed Lord Ram in a bad way, insulted Hindu gods and hurt Hindu’s feelings. “In the film, there is a scene where the police are chasing Lord Srirama and there is vulgar conversation between Sriram and Sita. It is against to Hindu Religious Act under IPC Section 295, 298A, 295A and it is a serious crime. The film producers violated all the rules of Censor board”, he said.

Mohan Gowda demanded that the Censor Board not certify for the film and to remove some scenes immediately. “We will approach the film chamber to lodge a complaint about the same. The Samiti will lodge criminal cases against the movie team for hurting Hindu emotions”, he warned.
