Bengaluru: A City Civil Court on Saturday stayed the screening of Puneeth Rajkumar-starrer Anjaniputra, which has been running successfully in 400 screens across the State since Thursday, till January 2.

The court stayed the screening after admitting a petition filed by a team of advocates. The petitioners said the film brought disgrace to advocates community through the dialogue of a police officer. The court ordered suspension of screening from Saturday. However, with the notice still to reach distributors and exhibitors, shows went on uninterrupted.

Besides releasing in over 400 screens across the State, the film is being screened in 50 centres in the international circuit. Anjaniputra is a remake of Tamil film Poojai starring Vishal. The film was cleared by the CBFC, which accorded it U/A certificate without cuts.

According to the petitioner, the film humiliates the advocate community in the guise of entertainment and freedom of expression. “We demand a public apology from the producer and director and removal of the dialogue,” said advocate Narayanaswamy.
