August 4, 2014 - Hyderabad
The AP High Court on Monday issued notices to Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat and to KC Bokadia, the producer of the film ‘Dirty Politics’ and Union Government.
The High Court while admitting a Public Interest Litigation filed by city based rights activist T Dhan Gopal Rao alleged that both the actress and producer have intentionally insulted the national flag in the poster of the upcoming film in which the actress draped in the three colours of the National Flag.
According to Dhan Gopal Rao, a division bench comprising of Chief Justice Kalyan Jyothi Sengupta and Justice PV Sanjay Kumar heard the petition and ordered the notices to the secretary of Union Ministry of Home Affairs, Actress and the Producer asking them to file their affidavits before three weeks. The petitioner filed that the use of National Flag for commercial purposes is an insult and urged the court for an order to the producer from further exhibiting it.
