Arrest warrants issued against Deepika, Ranveer Singh and Sanjay Leela Bhansali over 'Ram Leela'

A local court in Muzaffarpur (Bihar) issued arrest warrants on Friday against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actors Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh after complaints that some scenes in their film "Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram-Leela" were hurtful to the religious sentiments of Hindus.

Warrants were also issued against another producer Kishore Lulla, as well as the musicians and lyricists of the movie. SP Singh, the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Muzaffarpur, where the warrant was issued, has asked Mumbai Police to arrest them and produce them in his court on June 4.

These warrants were issued based on a complaint lodged by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha in November 2013, who alleged that the movie hurt religious sentiments of the Hindus.

The CJM took notice of the case in February 2014, and asked the director and actors to turn up, which they did not do, following which the warrants were issued against them.
