Kedarnath Actor Tarun Gahlot Is All Praises For Sara Ali Khan!

Kedarnath: Bombay High Court's 'NOC' couldn't save Sara Ali Khan's debut movie from getting banned in 7 Uttarakhand districts

We asked district magistrates to maintain peace and everyone has decided that Kedarnath movie should be banned.

Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Rajput starrer "Kedarnath' will not be released Uttarakhand". Gujarat High Court called the petition a publicity stunt and imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on the petitioner Prakash Rajput, president of International Hindu Sena. In the meeting, it was decided that the state government would not ban the movie and instead leave the decision to district administrations.

Keeping in view the objections, the state government had formed a committee headed by Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj and comprising Home Secretary Nitesh Kumar Jha, Director General of Police Anit Ratoori and Tourism Secretary Dilip Jawalkar. Previously, the Supreme Court came down heavily on individual states against opting for a blanket ban across states according to the whims of state governments.

The latest orders by the District Magistrates would mean that the film will not release in state capital Dehradun, Haridwar, Pauri, Tehri, Nainital, Almora and Udhamsinghnagar.

The Hindi flick, with the 2013 flash floods in Kedarnath as the backdrop, was being opposed by the right-wing activists from the day its shooting began in the hill state and they alleged that it hurt Hindu sentiments and promoted the idea of "Love Jihad".

The petition in Bombay High Court was filed by two local lawyers. He said the theatre received the district administration's notice regarding the ban in the evening and hence the movie was not screened.

Also, kissing and romantic scenes in a holy place worshipped by crores of people is a sign of disrespect to the religion."There has been strong protest against the film, and it has been banned in Uttarakhand".
