A lawyer from Mumbai, Vijendra Kumar Rai has written a strongly-worded letter to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, the President Of India and the Chairperson of the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) asking that strong action be taken against Ajay Devgn the producer, director and actor of Shivaay, for ‘insulting’ Lord Shiva in the song Bol har har.
The impassioned letter, a copy of which is with us, claims that the Shiva Panchakshara Strotram has been used in a provocative and offensive manner.
“I hereby strongly complaint (sic.) that Mr Ajay Devgn….is hearting(sic) and insulting my religious feelings and beliefs and that the film Shivaay is showing and promoting bad images of Lord Shiva’s Panchakshara Strotam…I request you to register a complaint against Mr Ajay Devgn and take serious action against the above named person,” says the letter.
While Ajay Devgn was unavailable for comment, Pahlaj Nihalani the chairperson of CBFC commented, “We’ve taken serious note of the letter, as it addresses a religious sentiment.”
