Kedarnath banned in 7 Uttarakhand districts, disruption of peace expected

Feature

The film also stars actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role. The movie, set in the backdrop of the June 2013 natural tragedy that killed thousands of pilgrims in the temple town of Kedarnath, was released countrywide on 7 December.

Now, as ordered by District Magistrate Nainital Vinod Kr Suman, the film has been banned in Nainital district. Ever since the trailer and teaser of Kedarnath hit the web, priests from the shrine-town have been wildly protesting against the film, saying that it is a case of "love-jihad", as the two lead characters are Hindu and Muslim, who fall in love. The movie is being directed by Abhishek Kapoor who had this project lined up for about 4 years and he wanted to make a movie on the Kedarnath movie with a love story angle. Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Ashok Kumar said the film has been banned in seven districts, reported PTI. "The movie is banned everywhere in state".

Uttarakhand Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj on Friday said screening of Hindi film Kedarnath has been stopped across the state, a day after the state High Court dismissed a plea seeking to ban the movie. The court told Bharti to raise its objections with Maharaj's committee.

Ajay said, "The movie appears to be an effort to promote love jihad". "We are not the censor board".
