Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is baffled, amused and exasperated by the court order from Jaipur based on a complaint by a lawyer that Ram Leela hurts religious sentiments and incites enmity between different groups of people on the grounds of religion.
The lawyer came to the above conclusions on the basis of the Ram Leela trailer. However, the complainant seems to have read wrong signals in the film's trailer.
Incensed by what is seen as an attempt to provoke legal action against major films on the eve of their release, SLB's team now intends to take stern action against the complainant who has apparently made a false and malicious allegation against Ram Leela.
Says a source from SLB's team, "Now-a-days it has become the norm to harass filmmakers, producers and writers just weeks before a film's release. There should be a rule that no cases can be filed against a film just before its release. This would spare filmmakers a lot of nuisance."
