SC dismissed a plea filed against Aamir Khan and director of film Pk for allegedly showing nudity in the movie and advised the petitioner to not be so sensitive.
According to India Today, the Supreme Court dismissed the plea and told the petitioner, "If you don't like then don't watch the film but don't bring religious facets in it", adding that, "these are matters of art and entertainment and let them remain so." The Chief Justice of India also told the petitioner not to be so sensitive to such things and said that “What will you hide in the age of Internet. Today's youth is very smart”.
The controversy surrounding the release of poster of film 'PK' showing Aamir Khan standing semi-nude with a radio reached the Supreme Court when a PIL was filed seeking a ban on the release of the film. The petition, filed by All India Human Rights and Social Justice Front alleged that the film promotes nudity and pleaded the apex court to immediately intervene in the matter.
The petitioner had made Aamir Khan and the director of the film Rajkumar Hirani parties in the case in addition to the Centre and the Information and Broadcasting Ministry. A case has already been filed in a court in Kanpur, on 2 August, against Khan and the makers of the "PK" after the release of its poster. In the complaint, lawyer Manoj Dixit accused the actor, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani of promoting nudity and vulgarity.
