HC asks Dharma Productions and Govt to sort out issues with production house Gunjan Saxena

Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the counsels representing the Indian Air Force and the makers of the film ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’ to sit together and hold a conference to sort out the issues related to the content shared in the movie. The court, however, refused to pass any interim order over the plea filed by the Central government seeking to restrain release of Film Covid-19 pandemic and said that those who wanted to watch had already seen it on OTT platform. However, the court refused

Gunjan Saxena was an IAF officer who participated in the Kargil war. “The filmmakers can’t show such scenes under artistic independence. It’s a fact that Sajid Jaiswal was my first female officer of the Air Force,” said Justice Shakdher. The Ministry of Defence sought permanent injunction to restrain broadcasting, telecasting and releasing the film in public domain, privately or otherwise, without the grant of NOC from the Plaintiff (IAF). The court will now hear the matter.
