New Delhi, Jan 7: Delhi High Court today said there was nothing offensive in Aamir Khan-starrer film 'PK' and there was no substance in allegations that it has defamed and maligned Hindu culture and religious practices.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice R S Endlaw, said there was nothing wrong in the movie and a detailed order would be passed on merits.

Nothing offensive in 'PK' movie, says Delhi High Court.
"What is wrong in the movie? You cannot take offence at everything. We do not find any substance in the allegations made in the petition. We will pass an order on merits," the bench said.

During the hearing, Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain told the court that a similar plea has already been dismissed by the Supreme Court. He said there was a provision to appeal against the certification of the movie.

On this, the court said the right of appeal against certification was limited to makers of the movie and not open to outsiders. The High Court was hearing a PIL filed by Ajay Gautam seeking directions to delete "objectionable" scenes from the movie 'PK' claiming that the contents of the film have hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus.

"There are certain sequences in the movie which have the potential of hurting Hindu religious sentiments and the Censor Board has not given it a serious consideration while granting the certificate of fitness for its release in theatres," it said.

It said that law and order situation was also affected at many places after the release of the film due to "large scale" protests and demonstrations seeking ban on the film.

"Restrain opposite parties to ensure that the film is not displayed in any theatre or on any of the TV channels in any form with offensive sequences," the plea said.
