he/she also said that rules and regulations are necessary to bring OTT under the Government of India, otherwise anyone will show anything on OTT. This should not happen. Shailesh Patwari further said, “Yash Raj Films had tried for another certificate to release the film ‘Maharaj’ on OTT. But later they felt that there could be a problem in it, so that’s why they selected OTT. A lot of wrong things have been shown in this film. Wrong things were also told about Lord Krishna and our Maharajas. That decision was given by the judges of the British era. We should not forget this. We had also written to the government office in this regard, but did not get any response. Then we had to knock the door of the High Court. Right now the court has continued the stay on the film and will give the decision tomorrow at 2:30 pm.

What is the reason behind the controversy over ‘Maharaj’?

The story of ‘Maharaj’ is based on the story of the defamation case of 1862, in which wrong comments were made about Lord Krishna and many devotional songs. Apart from Junaid Khan, the film also stars actor Jaideep Ahlawat. Junaid Khan has played the role of Karsandas Mulji, a reporter and social reformer. he/she raised his/her voice for the rights and reforms of women. In the poster of the film, Junaid Khan has a tilak on his/her forehead, which is also controversial. For this reason, the petitioners have appealed to cancel the certification of the film along with banning it.
