Gujarat High Court grants a Hindu organization’s appeal to postpone the release of Aamir Khan’s son Junaid’s movie


Siddharth P. Malhotra’s film Maharaj, which stars Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan, marks the actor’s feature film debut. The film’s release has now been halted by the Gujarat High Court.There has been an issue with the releasing of Aamir Khan’s oldest son Junaid’s first movie, Maharaj. India Today reports that the Gujarat High Court has now postponed the movie’s release in response to a Hindu organization’s request, arguing that the film would promote violence. Siddharth P. Malhotra is the director of Maharaj, which also features Jaideep Ahlawat.

According to the article, the stay order was granted in response to a plea that was submitted by members of the Pushtimarg sect and devotees of Lord Krishna and Vallabhacharya. The petition was founded on the claim that the movie, which is centred on the 1862 Maharaj Libel Case, had the potential to disrupt public order and even inspire violence against the sect’s adherents.The petition highlights that the English judges of the Bombay Supreme Court presided over the Maharaj Libel Case of 1862, which was founded on accusations of wrongdoing by a well-known individual. The remarks said are “seriously blasphemous against devotional songs and hymns as well as Lord Krishna.”

In the meantime, the lawsuit also notes that there will be restricted access to the plot because the movie is not expected to be released with enough promotional materials, such as a trailer. That might gravely harm people’s feelings. Judge Sangeeta Vishen of the Gujarat High Court issued an interim order on these grounds, prohibiting the movie’s release in any format. A hearing on the subject has been rescheduled for June 18.
