Asaram Bapu’s Trust issues a legal notice against the Manoj Bajpayee’s Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai.
However, it didn’t go well with the charitable trust. The trust of rape convict Asaram has issued a legal warning to the producers of the upcoming ZEE5 film Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai and its key actor Manoj Bajpayee for allegedly basing the movie’s villain on the convict. Along with requesting that the film’s distribution be delayed and that its trailer be taken down from the internet, they have also sent notices to the Information & Broadcasting Ministry and the CBFC.
The notice went on to say that the teaser and trailer’s content is “derogatory” and “highly objectionable” towards Asaram. “That, it is also worthwhile to submit that in the teaser and trailer of the movie aforesaid, very obscene and hatred language has been used, by filmmaker, which is not only derogatory, rather it impeaches the very character of my client by portraying him as ‘Ravan and serious rapist,’ which is an insult to his religious and spiritual character and so also belief and sentiments of the lacs of their followers and devotees. The movie seeks to portray him as a negative character, which would definitely cause irreparable damage to his character, reputation and standing in society and public at large in across the country and abroad.”
Additionally, according to the notice filed by attorney Satya Prakash Sharma, the actor portraying the evil Godman has a voice and persona that are similar to Asaram’s, as well as a similar name.
The notice also claims that Asaram and his followers will suffer great “mental anguish,” “humiliation,” and “embarrassment” as a result of Sirf Ek Banda Kaafi Hai. The notification further claims that the movie will “have a major damage on his social and financial status, resulting in a loss of confidence and respect among his followers and admirers. Additionally, according to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting’s certification of films requirements, any material that might offend a community or a religious organization must not be permitted to be screened in public.
The lawyer further notes that Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai would be shown only on OTT. “However, the Government of India has also framed Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules 2021 to regularise OTT platforms. Therefore, in case the filmmakers of aforesaid movie proceed to release or telecast it on OTT platform, necessary restraint/ prohibitory orders may kindly be issued against the filmmakers for release/ telecast/ promotion of the movie in question on the OTT platform,” said the notice.
