While the Brahmin organizations in various districts of the state have filed protests, a lawyer Vikas Dwivedi in Lucknow has petitioned the court for action against the movie ‘Adipurush’ actors and producers.
On October 6, a complaint was filed in the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) by Pramod Pandey, a Lucknow-based lawyer, against Saif Ali Khan, Prabhas Raghav, Kriti Sanon, producer & director Om Raut and Bhushan Kumar.
The lawyer has requested that a criminal case be filed against the actors and filmmakers under Section 153 (3) of the CrPC for portraying Hindu Gods incorrectly, particularly Shri Hanuman and Shri Ram.
The complaint alleged that Lord Hanuman is depicted in a leather outfit, and Lord Ram is also depicted in a negative light.
Immediately following this, a complaint was filed with the Lucknow Police Commissioner, but no action was taken. Therefore the lawyer decided to seek legal action.
