The Court rejected the petition, stating that DHOBI GHAT is a geographical description of a place and is not offensive. The high court bench of Chief Justice Dipak Nisra and Justice Manmohan found no merit in the petition and imposed a penalty of Rs.25,000 on the petitioner and asked him to deposit the same with the National Blind Relief Association.

Kanojia, who heads the Hindustan Kanojia Organisation of dhobis, in his petition, claimed that the title of the film may lead to caste division. He sought from the court change of the film's title before it was released to theatres. He also requested the censor board to assess the film's title in order to avoid caste division.

DHOBI GHAT is about four people who are separated by class and language but are drawn into compelling relationships.
