A complaint has been filed with the police in Varanasi against actor Sunny Deol and Mohalla Assi director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi for reportedly hurting religious sentiments.
Earlier, the film's director had alleged that the film's trailer -- on basis of which this FIR was lodged -- was leaked and called it a conspiracy to malign the film, the actors and also author Kashi Nath Singh on whose novel (Kashi Ka Assi) the film is based.
“There are a few things I want to clarify — this is not the official trailer, it’s a leaked version for which we have lodged an FIR in Oshiwara (Mumbai Police) and Cyber Cell. It’s a conspiracy to malign us and the film. The version has been made in such a way that it shows as if the film is all about abuses and maligns the image of the holy city. That is not true. This is not what our film is all about,” Dwivedi clarifies.
