A PIL was filed in Allahabad High Court demanding immediate ban on Hindi Movie item number songs 'Munni Badnam Hui' and 'Sheila ki Jawani' on the grounds that they were against decency and morality.
On December 23, a woman had filed a PIL in court seeking an immediate ban on the two songs, alleging that they were against decency and morality.
The petitioner had requested the court to order a halt on the release of Hindi film 'Tees Maar Khan' till the song 'Sheila Ki Jawaani' is not removed from the film. In her PIL, the petitioner Nutan Thakur through her counsel Ashok Pandey had sought an order to immediately stop the public exhibition of these two songs, claiming they have a "bad" impact on society.
The petitioner had alleged that in the movie 'Dabangg' and 'Tees Maar Khan', as in almost all other films in other languages, many indecent, immoral and vulgar songs, dialogues and visual representations, were being disseminated to the general public through the means of channels of mass media before the issue of certificate under the law of the land.
The petitioner requested the court to direct the Censor Board and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to intervene and issue directives to the film-makers in all the languages and all other concerned bodies not to display anything (including songs, dances, dialogues, audio inputs, sequences, prommos or other such materials of the film) before the required certificate is issued to the films.
The petitioner also sought a court directive to stop the screening and public exhibition of 'Dabangg' as long as the song 'Munni Badnaam Hui' is not deleted from the film.
