No sooner the trailer of the Sunny Deol starrer Mohalla Assi came out, it managed to raise quite a few eyebrows, courtesy its 'explicit' content. The resultant was that a police complaint has been filed against Sunny Deol the film's director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi, by an organization named Sarvajan Jagruti Sanstha in Varanasi for reportedly hurting religious sentiments.
Meanwhile, the film's director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi clarified that the film's trailer that was 'released' was not an official one, but a leaked version. That's why he has now filed an FIR at the Oshiwara police station and also with the Cyber Cell. He added that, it was a conspiracy to malign the film's makers as well as the film. Further, he also added that the (leaked) version of the trailer has been made in such a way that it showed that the film was only about abuses and it maligned the holy city's image.
Besides Sunny Deol, Mohalla Assi stars Ravi Kishen and Sakshi Tanwar in lead roles and is based on the popular Hindi novel 'Kashi Ka Assi' by Dr. Kashinath Singh.
