On Thursday, the Lucknow bench at the Allahabad High Court banned the screening of the movie Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela across Uttar Pradesh until the words Ram Leela and Raasleela are removed from the title of the movie.
Subsequently, theaters in cities like NOIDA and Ghaziabad have to pull it off from their screens; leading to losses for the theater owners.
“It is a High Court ruling and we will abide by it. It will be applicable from today. Now, it is up to the distributor and production house to get the clearance from the court. But, commercially, it will not be a huge loss to us because it is the second week of the movie, and there are two big movies releasing today,” says Yogesh Raizada, corporate head of Wave Cinemas.
Meanwhile, the lead actress of the movie Deepika Padukone is on a high after this movie became her fourth consecutive hit of the year after Race 2, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express. She is every film-maker’s choice today as trade analyst Amod Mehra says “Deepika has come a long way from the days of her plain Jane avatar in her debut film Om Shanti Om. Today, she is a sex goddess. She has worked her way up. She should continue to work with big stars in woman-oriented films.”
peculations are rife that she is the highest paid actress in Bollywood… Might be true…
