Good News: Release of Ranveer Singh’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar gets a thumbs up by High Court

Recently a PIL was filed against the movie Jayeshbhai Jordaar due to a scene in its trailer. Delhi high court has recently approved the theatrical release of the movie on May 13

The Delhi high court has approved the release of Ranveer Singh’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar on May 13 but has asked the makers to add new disclaimers. The court was hearing a petition to have a scene portraying a pre-natal sex determination test removed. The Delhi High Court had previously requested a screening of the movie. The bench, led by acting Chief Justice Vipin Sangh, ordered Yash Raj Films to provide them with the relevant scene or the release will be stayed.

The court order that has been reported was, “We have also perused the trailer and also the relevant scenes from the movie. We had suggested certain further disclaimers to be displayed in the trailer and also in the movie when the scenes in relation to ultrasound scene and another connected scene is depicted. The learned senior counsel, without prejudice to his submissions, has agreed to depict a further static warning/disclaimer to be depicted during the running of both the scenes.”

On the bench, Justices Naveen Chawla and Manoj Kumar Ohri watched the relevant scenes from the film. On May 13, Jayesbhai Jordaar will be released in theatres. During the hearing, the bench stated that it is the filmmakers’ responsibility to guarantee that social problems are not celebrated onscreen. On behalf of the producers, senior attorney Jayant Mehta highlighted allusions from two recent films, Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi and Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat, to argue that the movie must be seen in its whole.
