On a public interest litigation to delete the song Anarkali
Disco Chali from the film Housefull 2 filed by the Anti-Corruption
Intelligence Committee stating that the song misrepresents
historical characters Salim and Anarkali, a division
bench of the Bombay High Court dismissed the public
judges from the division bench Chief Justice Mohit Shah
and Justice Nitin Jamdar directed the petitioner to
pursue their representation before the Censor Board.
In reply, the committee's advocate Shabana Sothe said
that the Censor Board of Film Certification previewed
the film and despite written representation on 22 March,
"they are not ready to listen."
SK Shah, who appeared for producer Sajid Nadiadwala,
director Sajid Khan and lyricist Samir Anjana, said
that the petition was a stunt. He also stated that
there was no textbook referring to Anarkali as a historical
their petition, the petitioners had stated that while
they were not for stalling the release of the film,
they wanted the song or the offending words removed.
