Kolkata complaint withdrawn

A Kolkata criminal complaint — the first action against the show — has been withdrawn. MediaNama confirmed that the case has been withdrawn by Rajeev Sinha, the Congress member who filed the petition. Sinha told MediaNama: “After Rahul Gandhi’s tweet, it was an eye-opener for me that Rajiv Gandhi’s sacrifices for the country cannot be clouded by a small dialogue. From someone who forgave his martyred father’s assassins, this is a teaching moment for party workers like us.”

The All India Cine Workers’ Association also filed a complaint against the dialogues in Mumbai. This complaint too has been withdrawn, it emerged from a court hearing in July.
