Patna court to hear 'Slumdog' case on Feb 24

Written by: Staff

Patna, Feb 24: A court in Patna will hear a case on Tuesday, Feb 24 filed against 'Slumdog Millionaire', in which the petitioner has charged that the title is offensive and derogatory.

On February 18, the court had postponed the hearing till Feb 24.

The petition has been filed against music director A R Rahman, actor Anil Kapoor and other Indians associated with the film.

"We have not filed a case that will cause massive harm to the makers of the film. The truth is that we have been hearing 'dog' for quite some time and we have raised objection against the same," said Shruti Singh, advocate for the petitioner.

Tapeshwar Vishwakarma, General Secretary of Slum Dwellers' Joint Action Committee said that the title of the film is an insult to the people residing in slums.

Vishwakarma expressed his disgust at the society that is regaling over the title of the movie just because the film happens to be a nomination for the Oscar Awards and not looking at what he called the Indians insulting fellow Indians.

Irrespective of the controversy, 'Slumdog Millionaire' has won 8 Oscar awards in Los Angels on Feb 23.
