Trouble Hits ‘Dum Maaro Dum’

Seems like the lucky stars are not in Junior Bachchan’s favor this year. While his recently released film ‘Game’ bombed at the box-office, the actor’s forthcoming flick ‘Dum Maaro Dum’, slated for an April 22 release, is also in trouble as it has been served legal notices.

Well, tabloids have revealed that the makers of the upcoming Abhishek Bachchan starrer flick ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ have been served legal notices by the Panaji bench of the Bombay High Court, over a petition asking to ban the film.

In the petition, petitioner Savio Rodrigues stated, “The film is against public order, decency and morality and there is clear violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution of India to the people of Goa.”

“The film is scheduled to be released on 22 April and as per the publicity given to the film by the producers in the media, the film will attract criminal minded tourists and offenders and drive away decent travellers and tourists from Goa,” claimed the petition.

The legal notices have been issued by Justice S.C. Dharmadhikari and Justice F.M. Reis, to the director and producers of ‘Dum Maaro Dum’. The moviemakers are required to return the notices by April 13.

‘Dum Maaro Dum’ director Rohan Sippy, producers Ramesh Sippy Entertainment and Fox Star Studios India, Goa’s chief secretary and the chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) are those, to whom the legal notices have been served.
