Three other modifications have also been made. The makers have blurred the logo of a liquor brand in the frame. Secondly, they have changed a temple scene to a different angle. The third modification is in the disclaimer’s content at the beginning of the film. The duration the disclaimer stays on screen has also been increased to ensure the audience can read it, a report in Hindustan Times stated.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday had refused to list for urgent hearing a plea seeking a stay on the October 25 release of ‘Thank God’ over alleged derogatory references to Lord Chitragupta. A bench comprising Chief Justice Uday Umesh Lalit and Justice Bela M Trivedi listed the plea of Shri Chitragupta Welfare Trust for hearing on November 1.
A report also added that apart from seeking a stay on the release of the movie, the said plea has also sought a direction that its trailers and posters be removed from electronic and social media platforms like Youtube as it allegedly contained derogatory expressions, acts, statements, dialogues and insulting images, videos in and around the character of God Chitragupta.
‘Thank God’ also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh in lead roles. It also features Nora Fatehi in a song number. The film is slated to hit the theatres on October 25 where it will lock horns with Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Ram Setu’ at the box office.
