The Allahabad High Court on Thursday banned Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh-starrer Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela in Uttar Pradesh.

The Lucknow bench of the court comprising justices Devi Prasad Singh and Ashok Pal Singh passed the order to ban the film on a petition filed by Maryada Purshottam Bhagwan Ramleela Samiti, Bahraich.

The petitioner had prayed for cancellation of Censor Board certification given to the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's romantic saga on November 1 and sought that controversial and objectionable dialogues be removed from the film.

The film starring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh was released on November 15 across India.



The petition had contended that the film was hurting religious sentiments of Hindus and its title Ramleela' was giving a wrong message to society as Lord Ram's 'leela' (act) had great impact on Indian society.

Besides, Centre, state government, Central Film Certification Board, UP's Chief Secretary, Eros International and Bhansali had been made a party in the petition.
