Petitioner Atul Jeswani, the district president of Hindu Seva Parishad, a Hindu organisation, had alleged in his plea that “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” director Kabir Khan, actor Salman Khan and producer Rockline Venkatesh have hurt the sentiments of Hindus since Bajrangi happens to be the name of Lord Hanuman.
In movie posters and promos Bajrangi (Lord Hanuman) has been linked with Bhaijaan which is “very offending”, the petitioner had told the court.
