‘Kedarnath’ screening banned across Uttarakhand, says state tourism minister

Whether releated to brawl in the making team to the Uttarkhand government banning its release in the state, over and out from this Kedarnath gets its path and is at the ticket counters finally. Moreover the reception is better as well which means ultimately this Abhishek Kapoor directed affair could sail through.

While the Uttarakhand HC rejected the PIL, district magistrates of Nainital and Udham Singh Nagar on Thursday imposed a ban on the screening of Kedarnath, apprehending disruption of law and order.

Meanwhile, the state government held a meeting chaired by chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat late in the evening.

There will be no screening of the film in seven districts of the state where Hindu outfits have protested against the film burning effigies of film-makers, he said. As for Sara Ali Khan, this is a fine start as well since her next release Simmba is anyways set to take a very good opening.

Maharaj said the movie "is not according to our culture and the film can instigate people", reported News18. "State shall ensure law and order is maintained".

"Don't see the movie if you don't like it", a division bench of Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice Ramesh Chand Khulbe told the petitioner, according to The Times of India. The court told Bharti to raise its objections with Maharaj's committee.
