The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a public interest litigation seeking ban on the release of PK for promoting nudity and vulgarity. Dismissing the plea, the apex court told the petitioner, "If you don't like then don't watch the film but don't bring religious facets in it", adding that, "these are matters of art and entertainment and let them remain so." The petition, filed by All India Human Rights and Social Justice Front on Wednesday, alleged that the film promotes nudity and pleaded the apex court to immediately intervene in the matter. However, the court, hearing the case today said, 'any restrictions on release of film would affect constitutional right of the film makers'.

The petitioner has made Aamir Khan and the director of the film Rajkumar Hirani parties in the case in addition to the Centre and the Information and Broadcasting Ministry. Advising the petitioner to learn to accept change the Chief Justice of India said, "Don't be sensitive to such things.What will you hide in the age of Internet. Today's youth is very smart." A case has already been filed in a court in Kanpur, on August 2, against Khan and the makers of the PK after its poster showed the Bollywood star bare-bodied except for a transistor covering his private parts. In the complaint, lawyer Manoj Dixit accused the actor, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani of promoting nudity and vulgarity. Although Aamir Khan clearly stated that the poster is not made with an intention to garner cheap publicity, the controversies regarding the film seem to have no end.
