Film runs into trouble for showing Dawood on poster
Thiruvananthapuram: Police here have taken up a suo motu case against a Malayalam film whose posters carried pictures of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
The film, `D-Company`, an action thriller released during the Onam festival season last month, is directed by M Padmakumar, Vinod Vijayan and Diphan.
The theme of the film, however, has nothing to do with Dawood`s life.
According to police, the case has been taken up on instructions from City Police Commissioner P Vijayan under the Young Persons (harmful publications) Act 1956.
The charge is that the posters displayed picture of Dawood Ibrahim, wanted by the law enforcers in the country.
The persons, who should be charged, would be decided only after the completion of preliminary inquiry since, as of now, police had only information on appearance of the posters. It should be ascertained through investigation whether the posters were made by producers, distributors or the handiwork of some others not connected to the film, sources said.
Meanwhile, a poster of an upcoming movie, `Idukki Gold` has incurred the wrath of pro-Hindu outfits for allegedly depicting Lord Shiva as smoking ganja with Latin American revolutionary icon Che Guevara.
A pro-RSS outfit, `Hindu Aykyavedi`, has lodged a complaint with police against it, sources said.
