We’ll be doomed if you say you haven’t watched the leaked trailer of Mohalla Assi till now. We have never seen Sunny Deol playing such a real character before. So we did share the trailer with you, but the video has now been taken down, unfortunately following the FIR lodged by the film’s director Chandraprakash Dwivedi stating that it 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.
Interestingly and not at all surprisingly, Hindustan Times reported that a complaint has now been filed with the police in Varanasi against Sunny Deol and Mohalla Assi director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi by Sarvajan Jagruti Sanstha for reportedly hurting religious sentiments. The members of Sarvajan Jagruti Sanstha have alleged that not only does the film violate moral ethics, but it also shows Varanasi in poor light. A complainant said, “the film hurts religious sentiments and we cannot allow such a film to be released.”
Amid all of these complaints and FIRs, we just hope that the film doesn’t face any problems as we are dying to watch Sunny Deol in an entire new avatar!
