Top Court orders Kolkata government to ensure Bhobishyoter Bhoot screening in theatres
Kolkata : The disappearance of movie Bhobishyoter Bhoot from the theatres, a day after its release, has become an unsolved mystery. But, the Supreme Court on Friday ordered Mamata Banerjee's government to ensure that the film is screened without obstruction.
Bhobishyoter Bhoot (The Ghost of the Future) is believed to be a dark stire based on the political scenario in the West Bengal.
The Supreme Court has ordered the chief secretary and principal secretary to see that the film is screened.
Mamata Banerjee, on the other hand, refused to make any comment on the disappearance of the movie and said, "Don't ask me such questions."
The producers told Supreme Court the Censor Board had cleared the film and no one had the right to stop its screening.
The West Bengal Police had raised an issue claiming that the screening of the film may raise a law and order situation in the state. The producers had declined to oblige.
Multiplex spokespersons initially claimed here were technical snags, then said "higher ups" had called and asked for the film to be removed as it could "cause law and order problems".
Sources said the calls had come from top police officers who could not be named.
