A petition seeking a ban on the release of Salman Khan-starrer “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” was today filed in the Allahabad High Court.

The Public Interest Litigation, filed by Chitrakoot-based social activist Anil Pradhan, has alleged that the movie contained scenes which could “hurt religious sentiments of the majority community”.

Scheduled for release on Idd, the movie tells the story of a young girl from Pakistan, who strays into Indian territory and faces tremendous difficulties on account of her being speech-impaired.

Salman, for whom it would be his first release ever since his conviction in the hit-and-run case, plays a Samaritan who takes it upon himself to help the child reunite with her family in the neighboring country.

The film, which also features Kareena Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, is scheduled for release on July 17.

The PIL, in which the Ministry for Information and Broadcasting, the film’s producers Yashraj Films and other members of the star cast have been named as parties, is likely to come up for hearing later this week.
