Supreme Court dismisses plea challenging Bombay HC order which rejected petition seeking injunction against Bollywood movie Gangubai Kathiawadi. Petition was filed by a man, who claimed to be adopted son of Gangubai Kathiawadi.
Several cases have been filed against the movie seeking to halt its release. Gangubai Kathaiwadi is based on the real-life sex worker who rose to political prominence in the neighbourhood of Kamathipura in Mumbai.
He had challenged an order from the Bombay High Court which refused to stay the release of the film. There are a slew of complaints filed against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, including one by Maharashtra MLA Amin Patel and Kamathipura resident Shraddha Surve both of which were dismissed by the Bombay High Court earlier today.
