The dialogue demeans the status of sex workers in the society!
The EMMC under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has been tasked to monitor the content of television channels and report on violations of the programme and advertising code.
The complaint filed by advocate and social activist Gaurav Gulati was referred to two dialogues where Kapoor allegedly “demeans the status of sex workers in the society.
Earlier, activist Prithvi Mhaske filed a complaint, with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), against Bollywood movie Sanju for showing jails and jail authorities in a bad light.
This is the controversial dialogue
In one of the scenes in the trailer, we saw Anushka Sharma, who plays a journalist, asking Ranbir about his former girlfriends to which Kapoor’s character replies saying, “308, without counting the prostitutes”. This particular remark has not gone down well with sex workers. Reportedly, the complainants have approached National Commision for Women and have raised their objection against mentioning them in a disrespectful manner.
This is not the first time when the film has landed in a trouble.
Earlier a complaint was filed with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) against Sanju. In his complaint, filed by activist Prithvi Mhaske, he raised an objection to the “toilet leakage scene in the barrack of jail picturized in the movie.”
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju is a biopic on the controversial life of Bollywood famous actor Sanjay Dutt. While Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in the titular role, the movie also stars Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma and Karishma Tanna.
