The Jabalpur District court has ordered local police to register an FIR against Aamir Khan, director Rajkumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and 7 others on a charge of obscenity.
The next hearing of the case will happen on September 19.
The ‘PK’ poster, which featured the Bollywood star posing nude, hasn’t gone down well with many, and created several legal problems for the much-awaited Aamir Khan starrer.
Supreme court had fresh unemployed a People Concern Proceeding which wanted a ban on the assemblage of ‘PK’ posters. Dismissing the appeal, the apex grounds told the applicant, “If you don’t equal then don’t timekeeper the wrapping but don’t modify interfaith facets in it”, adding that, “these are matters of art and diversion and let them remain so.”
The poster had elicited a roaring response from the Twitterati online, and several industry members had lauded the actor for pulling off such innovative stunts for his film’s promotions.
Filmmaker Karan Johar had tweeted: “Intriguing and brilliant first look of the much-awaited Raju Hiranis #PK.”
“aamir_khan what a first look, gotta keep looking to figure ke yeh #PK hai kya,” tweeted Kunal Kohli.
Composer Vishal Dadlani had said: “That PK poster is MAD!! Already curious as hell about the film! Raju Hirani is the bomb, & Aamir has almost sixth sense-esque script-sense.”
‘PK’ also features actor Sanjay Dutt, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput.
