The politically correct Dasavatharam!
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
May 14, 2008

The International Sri Vaishanva Dharma Samrakshana recently filed a petition against the film director, producer and the Central Censor Board in the High Court of Madras stating that Dasavatharam contains scenes that hurt the religious sentiments of Vaishnavites in particular. The separate counters, filed by the director and the Central


Censor Board, stated that it is improper on the part of the petitioner to arrive at a conclusion by merely viewing the promos.

Director K.S. Ravi Kumar in his petition had stated that the story is based on the books published by the Tamil Nadu Government; therefore, it has to be historically correct. The allegations that Kamal Haasan sets his foot on the “Om” mantra and the holy book Bagavadh Geetha is also incorrect. Moreover, the film is not based on Sri Rangam Temple or the God abode there. After hearing the pleadings, Justices Rajasurya and Sathyanarayan enquired the advocate present on behalf of the producer whether the release date has been finalized. On receiving a negative response, they adjourned case to May 20th.
