Ramleela actors Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone In Trouble

23 Sep

ImageLast week, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali released the official trailer of his much expected film, Ramleela. The trailer that got rave reviews from critics has now stirred up a controversy for allegedly ‘hurting religious sentiments’. On Saturday, a Jaipur court directed the police to register a case against the filmmaker along with actors Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone for turning different groups against each other on religious grounds. Advocate Pawan Sharma has filed a complaint against the film, in the court of the added chief metropolitan magistrate.

He said that the court took cognizance of the complaint and asked Jaipur’s Shyam Nagar police station to register a first information report (FIR). “The court has directed the police to investigate the complaint,” he added. Till the time of going to press, the FIR was not lodged at the police station.

When we asked the film’s publicists about the controversy, they said, “There is no official statement on the matter from the makers as of now.”
