Laal Singh Chaddha gets accused of disrespecting Indian Army; complaint filed against Aamir Khan starrer
The lawyer has filed a complaint against Aamir Khan, who is one of the producers of the film, along with filmmaker Advait Chandan, Paramount Pictures and other key members associated with the film. According to an ANI reports, the lawyer has demanded an FIR to be registered against the Laal Singh Chaddha team under sections 153, 153A, 298, and 505 accusing the makers of hurting religious sentiments, insulting the Indian Army as well as using provocative content to cause riots and chaos.
As per the complaint excerpts shared in ANI reports, it was said, "In the movie, the makers have depicted that a mentally challenged person was allowed to join Army to fight in the Kargil War. It is a well-known fact that the best army personnel were sent to fight the Kargil war and rigorously trained army personnel fought the war but the movie makers intentionally depicted the said situation to demoralise and defame the Indian army."
The complaint also referred to a scene where Aamir Khan terms ‘puja paath’ as ‘malaria’ because it causes ‘riots’ and called it intentionally provocative. It reportedly read, "This statement shows his intent of waging war and activating enmity between different groups on the grounds of religion which is against the ideology of a secular democratic country like and also mischief against Indian army which is a criminal offence as per the law of the land."
Laal Singh Chaddha is the official remake of Forrest Gump and features Aamir Khan as well as Kareena Kapoor Khan as the lead pair. The film released on August 11.
