Controversy seems to be following Dasavatharam, with just a few more weeks remaining for its release. First it was trouble during audio launch with journalist and media not being given good treatment, Then the rumors related to Jackie Chan, which said that he did not like his Indian visit and Jackie subsequently clearing this in his personal blog, Then the Mallika dress trouble and now its the turn of Hindu Organisations to protest against the objectionable content in the movie.
Nope, its not any more trouble with the dress that Mallika wears, its the clash between saivite and vaishanvite saints during the 16th century AD that is picturized in the movie that the Hindu outfits now find objectionable.
A petition has been filed by International Sri Vaishnava Dharma Samrakshanaa Society, president Swami Govinda Ramanuja Dasa in the Madras High Court and has asked for direction to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to remove scenes. They have also objected to the name of the movie, which hurts the Hindu sentiments.
It still remains to be seen if these scenes will be deleted from the movie as the movie has already been issued a clean U certificate by the censor board. The movie has already won the praise of CM Karunanidhi.
