Jodhaa Akbar Banned in Ambala


Ambala, Feb 22: The district administration imposed a ban on the screening of Jodhaa Akbar here, following protests by members of the Rajput community who alleged that historical facts had been distorted in the film.

Members of the community led by Congress leader Chetan Chauhan went on a protest march here on Thursday demanding a ban on the screening of the film. They submitted a memorandum to DC Ambala in which they said the film had hurt the sentiments of their community stating that Jodha Bai was Akbar's daughter-in-law and not his wife, as is portrayed in the film.

Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Shyin imposed the ban with immediate effect on the film which had released on February 15. The film is being screened in two cinema halls here. The protestors had also alleged that cinema halls had removed the posters of the film but were still screening it.
