A complaint has been filed with CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) against filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s film ‘Sanju’ over a toilet leakage scene in the movie. The complaint has been filed by activist Prithvi Mhaske, who has raised an objection on the scene, which takes place in the jail barrack in the film.

In a letter, dated June 11, to CBFC Chairman Prasoon Joshi, Mhaske stated: “In the trailer of the movie, Sanjay Dutt is in such a barrack of a jail, in which the toilet overflowed. As per the information available, the government and jail authorities are taking very good care of all the barracks of the jails. We have never heard of any such incidents anywhere. Earlier as well, many movies were released based on the gangsters, wherein the jails were picturised but no such incidents were shown. This particular scene will make a bad impression about the jails and jail authorities of India.”

Mhaske, in the letter, also wrote, “If there is no action about the same by you, then we are left with no option but to approach honourable court to put stay on the release of the movie.”
