Release of Black Friday stalled

Black Friday again faces intervention from the Bombay High Court just a day before its release. The Bombay High Court on Thursday stayed the release of the film Black Friday after several 1993 Mumbai blasts accused raised an objection that its screening would amount to interference with justice and attract contempt of court. On Monday, the makers of the film had agreed to withdraw the word “true” from its tag line ‘a true story about the serial blasts in Mumbai’ on a plea filed by the blast accused before the special Tada court. At that time there were speculations that the there might be a move to seek a stay on the films release. Mushtaq Tarani and other blast accused, who are in jail for the last 12 years, were not satisfied and moved the high court for stalling the film’s release. The film is based on a book written by a city-based crime reporter and has been in been in circulation for two years and the film’s producer Arindam Mitra and director Anurag Kashyap took shelter in the argument that no one had any grievances against the book so far. But advocate P Sebastian, representing the petitioner, said the film names the trial judge and the accused persons thereby pointing guilty fingers even before the judgement is out.
