INDIA: The Akshay Kumar starrer “Ram Setu” movie triggered controversy ahead of its theatrical release. A petition is filed against the movie by BJP staunch Subramanian Swamy. Swamy claims the movie portrays fake issues, which is unethical. The movie’s release can hurt many religious sentiments, so he demands compensation.
According to Swamy, the film claims to be non-fictional but tampers real facts and evidence. The BJP stalwart will now sue the star for making fun of religious sentimentality. The movie is helmed by Abhishek Sharma and produced under the banner of Karma Media. The initial release of the movie is set on 24 October 2022.
Swamy took to his Twitter and wrote, “The compensation case has been finalised by my colleague Advocate Satya Sabharwal. I am suing actor Akshay Kumar and Karma Media for damages caused due to the wrong portrayal of Ram Setu issue in their film.”
Followed by another tweet, Swamy highlighted the matter of Indian citizenship, “If the actor Akshay Kumar is a foreign citizen, then we can ask he be arrested and evicted from his adopted country.” Subramanian Swamy asked the Central government to declare “Ram Setu” a national heritage monument.
A case has been filed against the movie, and the hearing and Supreme Court will give the hearing in the coming week. The case will run under the supervision of Advocate Satya Sabharwal, who is Swati’s college friend. The movie casts Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha in pivotal roles apart from Khiladi Kumar. The movie follows an archaeologist investigating the nature of Ram Setu (Adam’s Bridge).
