News

Pune, Dec 6: A petition has been filed in a Pune court seeking a ban on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film Bajirao Mastani, alleging that it has distorted history relating to late king Shrimant Bajirao Peshwe and his family members.

The case will come up for hearing on November 26 before Pune Metropolitan Magistrate S S Bhule, according to advocate Wajid Khan, who appeared on behalf of Hemant Patil, president of NGO- Bharat against Corruption, who has filed the plea.


The petition was filed yesterday, alleged that historical facts had been wrongly portrayed in the film while showing late king Bajirao Peshwe and his wives Kashibai and Mastani. The 'Pinga' song in the film shows leading heroines Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone dancing together, which, the petitioner said "distorts" history.
