Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Aug 23 (UNI) City Civil judge A T Vaidya today asked the applicant to explain what he found objectionable in the film 'Omkara' and also to produce materials supporting his allegation, before the court tomorrow.

Earlier today the applicant's counsel M V Holmangi argued that the word 'Om' has religious significance. Besides, the film begins with vulgar and abusive language.

The petitioner's counsel contended that nearly 45 minutes of the film has foul language in it.

The judge asked the applicant to provide objectional material in the film before the court and adjourned the matter till tomorrow.

The petitioner, a small time actor, filed the petition seeking the court's directive to ban the film and prosecute Kumar Mangat, producer of the film, Devgan films, Director Vishal Bharadwaj and others.

'Omkara' is an adaptation of Shakesphere's 'Othello' and stars Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Vivek Oberoi, Nasserudin Shah, among others. The movie was released on July 28 to a lukewarm response.
