PIL demanding ban on ‘Finding Fanny’ rejected
The Delhi High Court has rejected the PIL (public interest litigation) asking ban on the release of the movie Finding Fanny by Homi Adajania owing to the use of the term called Fanny it. The Delhi High Court bench comprising of judges like RS Endlaw and EG Rohini nothing objectionable in this title and therefore rejected this plea. Sanjay Jain the additional solicitor general has appealed the court with this plea demanding to ban the movie owing to the obscene content, which was declined by the court. The PIL also challenged the U/A certificate, which was given by the censor board.
The PIL was filed by the NGO called Jai Jagriti Foundation by its leader Nandini Tiwari with the help of the lawyer. According to her Fanny happens to be slang and hence should be removed from the movie, banner, and poster. According to the PIL the word Fanny is obscene, and using this term can hurt the people and their sentiments. She further said in her PIL that such movies can corrupt the mind of children and youth. However, the court simply rejected this plea on the basis of not finding any tangible proof with the petition. Hence the movie Finding Fanny would be releasing as usual with same spirit and fervour.
