Judges to watch Santa Banta before deciding on its release

The Delhi High Court Wednesday reserved its verdict on a plea against the release of film ‘Santa Banta Pvt Ltd’ and will consider whether it could be said to ridicule the Sikh community after watching the film and the trailer.

Defending the clearance granted to the film by the Censor Board, Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain told the court of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath that there was “nothing objectionable” in the film, and the board “would have considered all relevant aspects” before granting its certificate.

The bench has now directed the producers to submit CDs of the film, its trailer and introductory PR material for its perusal.

The order was passed on a plea filed by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee which has contended that the movie, to be released on April 22, makes fun of the community and could also lead to “disturbance”.
