Even before the release into theatres the trailer of the film ‘Thank God’ starred by Ajay Devgn and Sidharth Malhotra, itself has stirred the viewers’ sentiments resulting into condemns and boycott trends.
According to one syndicate source, “A case has been filed against director Indra Kumar, actors Ajay Devgn and Siddhartha Malhotra, in a Jaunpur court by lawyer Himanshu Srivastava. The petitioner’s statement will be recorded on November 18.”
The source further affirms, the film’s trailer had been taken as a mockery against religion and has messed with religious beliefs and sentiments. In his petition, Srivastava said that Ajay Devgn, wearing a suit, is seen playing Chitragupta and in one of the scene he is seen cracking jokes and using objectionable language.
The statement of the petitioner records, “Chitragupta is regarded as the Lord of Karma and keeps a record of a man’s good and bad deeds. Such depiction of Gods can create an unpleasant situation since it hurts religious sentiments,”
The further allegations include by the source”….over three minute trailer of the film starts with Sidharth’s character getting into a car crash and then stepping into the game of life hosted by Chitragupt, essayed by Ajay, who counts all his weaknesses, which eventually decides his fate to go to either hell or heaven. The trailer also features Nora Fatehi, who plays an “apsara”, to check “vasana” or “lust” in Sidharth. Ajay is then heard saying: “Parayi aurat ko behen aur maa ki nazar se dekhna chahiye”.Known for his intense dialogue delivery, Ajay also tells Sidharth in the trailer that: “Tum jaante ho insaano ki sabse badhi galti kya hai? Tum bhagwaan ko toh maante ho, lekin bhagwaan ki ek nahi maante.”
