Hyderabad: Taking the suo motu cognisance, Jubilee Hills police have registered a case against 'Dirty Hari' movie producers, director and publishing agency for insulting women's dignity in the public and misleading the youth through the posters.

The police has taken suo motu cognisance after the poster of the Dirty Hari movie was displayed in Hyderabad Metro pillars in Venkatagiri area.
The police booked the case under section 292 of IPC and Indecent representation of women(prevention) act, 1986 on December 13.
The section 292 of IPC says, "a book, pamphlet, paper, writing, drawing, painting, representation, figure or any other object, shall be deemed to be obscene if it is lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest or if its effect (is) such as to tend to deprave and corrupt person."
Dirty Hari is an upcoming Telugu movie releasing on December 18, starring Shravan Reddy, Ruhani Sharma and Simrat Kaur. The movie is directed by MS Raju and Produced by Guduru Siva Rama, Guduru Sateesh Babu and Guduru Sai Puneeth under the banner of SPJ Creations.

Also, on December 13 even before the shooting of the film 'Mishan Impossible' could start, a BJP leader has lodged a complaint with the cybercrime police against Matinee Entertainments for hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus.

Matinee Entertainments had released a promotional poster of the movie on social media. The poster shows three kids holding guns while dressed as the Hindu gods Rama, Shiva, and Krishna.

The BJP leader, Sumiran Komarraju, lodged a complaint on 13 December stating, "The poster hurts the sentiments of Hindus. It portrays our deities wielding ammunitions."

After the complaint was filed, Matinee Entertainment said it did not want to hurt the sentiment of any section of the society. "In relation to certain objections raised about a recent poster of 'Mishan Impossible' released by us, we wish to state and clarify that we did not intend to hurt the feelings or sentiments of any section of the society," said Matinee Entertainment in its statement.

It also said it regretted any intentional hurt that the poster may have caused and said steps were being taken to recall the poster immediately.
