Kayastha Samaj members file complaint against film 'Thank God' in Rajasthan

    Dholpur (Rajasthan), Sep 22 (PTI) Representatives of the Kayastha Samaj have filed a police complaint against makers of the upcoming movie 'Thank God' for alleged indecent portrayal of Hindu deity Chitragupta.
    The complaint was lodged against actor Ajay Devgn, producer T-Series and others.
    Led by senior social worker Chandrakant Saxena, the representatives of the community reached the Nihalganj police station in the city under the banner of the Sri Chitragupta Committee and filed the complaint.
    A memorandum will be handed over to the district collector on Friday, national senior vice-president of Kayastha Mahasabha Sanjeev Srivastava said.
    He said the film's trailer shows Chitragupta dressed in modern costumes and surrounded by "half-naked women".
    This has hurt religious sentiments, Srivastava said, adding that a conspiracy is afoot to harm social harmony.
    The objectionable scenes should be removed, he demanded.
    'Thank God' is slated to be released on October 25. PTI COR AG IJT
