Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court on Monday issued notices to Bollywood actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan and two others in connection with the public exhibition of an objectionable song in his latest production venture "Delhi Belly", a lawyer said.
While hearing a public interest litigation, seeking a ban on showing the controversial song "Bhag DK Bose", a division bench also issued notice to the censor board and Ram Sampat, the writer of the song.
The petition was moved by law graduate Saumitra Dwivedi.
"It was stated that the public exhibition of the (objectionable) song stands in violation of the 'A' certificate given to the movie for its adult content, and therefore it should be screened only in the movie and not anywhere else," counsel Vinay Saran told reporters.
"The division bench has given two weeks time to Khan and others to file their reply. The next date of hearing has been fixed on Aug 9th," he added.
