New Delhi: Sunny Deol might have always kept controversies at bay, but this time, thereâ€™s a string of it waiting for him.
A police complaint has been lodged in Varanasi against Bollywood actor Sunny Deol and director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi over abuses in their forthcoming film â€œMohalla Assiâ€.
Complainant Sarvajan Jagruti Sanstha has alleged that not only does it violate moral ethics, but it also shows Varanasi in a poor light.
The social organization filed the complaint at Bhelupur police stationÂ on Sunday.
â€œThe film hurts religious sentiments and we cannot allow such a film to be released,â€ a complainant said. The film is based on a novel â€“ â€œKashi Ka Assiâ€ â€“ written by acclaimed Hindi writer Kashinath Singh. The film also stars Ravi Kishen and Sakshi Tanwar. Sunny Deol plays the lead role of a Sanskrit teacher and an orthodox religious priest (Pundit) while Sakshi Tanwar plays his wife.
