New Delhi: Gurmeet Ram Rahim's film 'MSG: Messenger of God' may finally hit the silverscreen as reports suggest that the Punjab and Haryana High Court is going to allow the release of the film.
The movie has been surrounded by controversies and protests from various groups since the time the trailer was released. A ban was imposed on the movie following an advisory from central agencies that the movie could lead to law and order problem in Punjab. Protests also took place in many parts of Haryana claiming that the Dera Sacha Sauda sect leader was accused of blasphemy.
'MSG' was to be released on January 16 but it did not get clearance from the censor board in time. The tentative date of release now has been set at February 13.
The sect leader held a press conference and claimed that the movie is not against any religion, group or people and was only highlighting social evils. He also asked the people to judge the film only after watching it and not protest due to preconceived notions.
The maker of the film has also stated that a sequel is in the pipeline. With the relief from the court, the movie may soon see the light of day.
