Kareena Kapoor Khan gets court notice for using ‘Bible’ in 2021 pregnancy book title

Apparently, notices have also been given to the sellers of the books.

The Madhya Pradesh High Court has issued a notice to Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan over a suit filed against her book, ‘Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Pregnancy Bible.’ The actress released the book in July 2021, following the birth of her second son, Jeh.

Kareena described the book as her third child and stated that it is a detailed account of her physical and mental experiences during each of her pregnancies.

A warning has reportedly been delivered to the actress after an advocate filed a complaint with the court about the usage of the term bible in the book’s title. The court has requested a response from Kareena over the use of the word in the title.

Following advocate Christopher Anthony’s call for a restriction on the book’s sale, notices were reportedly given to the book’s vendors. In his appeal, Anthony argued that the word ‘Bible’ in the book’s title had offended the Christian community. He claimed it was incorrect to equate pregnancy to the Bible.

In 2021, a Christian group objected to the title of a book, and a police case was filed against the actress and two people in Beed, Maharashtra, accusing them of offending religious sensitivities.

Kareena and her actor-husband, Saif Ali Khan, welcomed Jeh in February 2021. They tied the knot in 2012. Their first child, Taimur Ali Khan, was born in 2016.

Meanwhile, Kareena was most recently seen in Crew, with Tabu and Kriti Sanon. On May 7, UNICEF India named Kareena its new National ambassador. Kareena had previously worked as a celebrity advocate for UNICEF India.
