Shanghai film maker thanks Delhi HC
New Delhi: Shanghai film maker Vishal Dadlani thanked Delhi High Court after it rejected the PIL filed against the film’s song Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. Vishal expressed his happiness tweeting “PIL against #bharatmatakijai from Shanghai, REJECTED by the Delhi High Court! The Court has protected freedom of speech! Many thanks!”. @V1SH4L: “BHARAT MATA KI JAI! And today, with no sarcasm at all, and with deepest thanks to the Delhi High Court!” .
A public interest litigation (PIL) was filed against the song, which is now rejected by the Delhi High Court. One can finally claim that people of India enjoy their constitutional rights. Music director/composer/singer Vishal Dadlani commented on his official Twitter account about this issue and has thanked the Delhi high Court for this noble and rational gesture. Shanghai is releasing on the 8th of June, 2012, with complete freedom and right to expression.
The film features its song ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, from which has been adapted as the new anthem. But as the human law speaks, “Some like it and some don’t!” In the case of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, it is a song which is a favorite amongst the majority. To an extent that people nationwide are using ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ as a quote of revolt against anything that is wrong.
