Court refuses stay on launch of film 'Shanghai'
Jun 6th 2012, 11:46

The Delhi High Court today dismissed a request seeking stay on the June 8 launch of Bollywood movie ”Shanghai”, saying there’s nothing insulting in its track ”Bharat Mata ki jai” and it just depicted ”the existing state of affairs” in India.

A division bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rajiv Shakdher said: “We don’t get anything objectionable in the said song. In a democracy, every individual has a right to voice his opinions and views… the same right to speech and expression can’t be restricted except under some situations.

“The writer of the song has merely sought to portray the existing scenario in India, once considered a golden bird… is now infested with problems like dengue and malaria. The request is dismissed,” the bench opined. Tejinder Pal Singh Bagga, leader of Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena, registered a public interest lawsuit (PIL) seeking an interim stay on launch of “Shanghai” until its song “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” was removed.
