New Delhi: Amidst hullabaloo over the content of the movie `Kaum De Heere`, the Ministry of Home Affairs on Thursday asked the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to take a relook at clearance given to it.

The MHA has expressed reservations on content of the upcoming Punjabi movie on former prime minister Indira Gandhi`s assassination.

Notably, the film has been given clean chit by the Censor Board.
Congress as well as the BJP are opposing the release of the film.

Punjab Youth Congress also wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi a few days ago, requesting ban on the film.

Indira Gandhi was shot dead by her two Sikh bodyguards at her official residence in New Delhi on October 31, 1984.
After months of stalling due to objections by the Censor Board, the movie on the assassination, is set for release on August 22.
