After it received a petition that alleged use of unparliamentary language in films like BANDIT QUEEN, GANGAJAL, OMKARA and PEEPLI LIVE, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has issued notices to makers of films and also to the chairman and secretary of Film Censor Board.

The notices were issued by a bench comprising Justice Umanath Singh and Justice Virendra Kumar Dixit on the petition filed by a local lawyer Ashok Pandey, who sought cancellation of censor certificates to these films.

Pandey also pleaded with the Court to direct the Union government to displace all the members of the Censor Board including the chairman for allegedly violating the Cinematograohy Act.

Those against whom notices have been issued include chairman of Censor Board Sharmila Tagore, producers of PEEPLI LIVE Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao, director Anusha Rizvi, producer-director of GANGAJAL Prakash Jha, producer of OMKARA Kumar Mangat and director Vishal Bharadwaj and director of BANDIT QUEEN Shekhar Kapoor.

The Court has fixed 27 October as the next date of hearing.
