High Court said: ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ also stars ‘Arjun Reddy’ fame Shalini Pandey, who is making her Bollywood debut with Ranveer. The film is directed by debutant Divyang Thakkar and is released on May 13.
The film has come into controversy over the scenes of Ranveer Singh’s upcoming film ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’. The Delhi High Court has made an important comment on this regarding the scene of the Fetal gender Test in the trailer.
The High Court says that such a scene cannot be shown without a disclaimer. Recently, a petition was filed in this matter, acting on which the High Court has now given this statement.
Can’t show such scenes without a disclaimer
The court made the observation while hearing a petition filed against a scene in the trailer of Ranveer Singh starrer ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’,
which shows the use of ultrasound technology for gender selection. After watching the trailer, a bench of Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Navin Chawla said,
“Nothing is shown in the trailer that the woman is secretly taken to the doctor. What is emerging is that any pregnant woman can be taken to the center regularly with a sonography machine and this can be done without any shackles.
In the petition filed through the petitioner ‘Youth Against Crime’, an NGO advocate Pawan Prakash Pathak said,
“Ultrasound clinic scene where the technique of ultrasound for gender selection without a sensor is being openly advertised and PC and Section 3, 3A, 3B, 4, 6 and 22 of the PNDT Act and hence an urgent PIL has been filed.”
Though the film is meant to promote the slogan “Save Girl Child” and is against female feticide, the film’s trailer advertises the use of ultrasound technology, according to the petitioner.
During the hearing, the counsel for the producers of the film argued that the trailer contained a disclaimer.
In response, the bench observed that the disclaimer is barely visible or legible, and further ordered the counsel to take directions. “Unless we see for ourselves and are satisfied, we will not allow it. Whether you ask for directions or something,
we have to stop it,” he said. The judges asked the producer to show the part of the film that had been disputed. Also read: Sarkaru Vaari Paata: Everything You Need To Know
