Vastavam web: The Bombay High Court today refused to stay the release of the Shraddha Kapoor starrer movie “Haseena Parkar”, saying it can’t pass last-minute orders on a film cleared by the censor board.The film named after and based on the life of mob boss Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar, is slated for release tomorrow.”This movie is based on the life of a real person. It tends to glorify an underworld don’s sister. The dialogues shown in the film’s trailer are anti-national and anti-social,” the petitioner claimed.
“Also, the film seeks to provide entertainment through a sensitive issue as the 93 blasts,” he contended.A bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice N M Jamdar, however, questioned why the petitioner chose to approach the court just a day before the film’s release.”Are we above CBFC? The CBFC must have taken all objectionable material into consideration while granting the certificate to the film as per the statutory provision. No one is above such provision,” the bench said.
“Several others too must have seen the trailers. But no one came to us with objections. How can this then be a subject of a PIL? We can’t pass last minute interim orders against release of a film cleared by the CBFC,” the bench noted.
