Uttarakhand Bans Release of ‘Kedaranath’ Movie


Actor Sushant Singh Rajput and debut actor Sara Ali Khan starrer Kedarnath is banned in Uttarakhand.

On December 6, the screening of the movie was prohibited by the district magistrates of Nainital and Udham Singh Nagar for hurting people’s sentiments.

Uttarakhand Minister, Satpal Singh Rawat said, “Our committee has put forwarded the report to the Chief Minister. The District Magistrates have been advised to maintain law and order in the state. The screening of the film is banned”.

He further echoed, “The movie is not according to our culture and can instigate people”.

The movie is facing people’s wrath on account of its narrative suggesting love jihad.

Kedarnath movie is primed upon the horrifying Uttarakhand floods that shook the hilly state in 2013. It portrays the love story of a Muslim potter and a Hindu girl on a holy expedition.
