Bombay HC issues notices to Big B, Sony TV for 'insulting' Netaji

Amitabh Bachchan

The actor then tells viewers, "Ladies and gentlemen, I have been saying from the start that no question can be insignificant."

In yet another scene, two patients donating blood ask the doctor, "You took our blood. When will you give freedom?" and they laugh out loud.

In another scene, a student kills a mosquito which sat on his forearm and says, "You drank my blood and I will give you freedom."

The petitioner said he was immensely hurt by the promo being telecast by Sony TV. He said the promo gave the impression that people were unaware about the contribution of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose to the freedom struggle.

Such a promo was an insult to the great freedom fighter who laid down his life to free India from British rule, the PIL said.

The petitioner stated such cantankerous and surreptitious approach of respondents will bring about a feeling of insecurity among Indians. Moreover, such approach will harm the integrity and harmony existing among the people.
