Katrina Kaif starrer Raajneeti faced lawsuit over defaming Sonia Gandhi

Katrina Kaif’s Rajneeti had been sued by a social worker on the ground of defaming, Congress party President, Sonia Gandhi. The movie is scheduled to release on June 4, 2010.

In Raajneeti, Katrina Kaif played the role of a female politician. Her sari clad picture sparked rumor that she is actually playing the character of Sonia Gandhi. This prompted Naseem Khan, a social worker, to file a case against Raajneeti at the Mumbai Civil court. Naseem Khan urged the court to ban the film on the ground that Katrina kaif’s character is based on Sonia Gandhi’s life and director Prakash Jha should not degrade Sonia Gandhi’s image by showing intimate scenes between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.

However, Prakash Jha said that Katrina Kaif’s character has no resemblance with Sonia Gandhi. In fact, all the characters in the movie have no resemblance with any person living or dead.

Katrina Kaif admitted of watching the videos of Sonia Gandhi, Indira Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to portray the character of a politician but she also said that her character has no resemblance with Sonia Gandhi. Katrina Kaif even went on to meet some female politicians like Sheila Dikshit, Chief Minister, Delhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. She spoke highly of Sonia Gandhi and expressed her wish to meet with Sonia Gandhi in person.

Raajneeti is a political thriller, revolving around some political characters and an election. The movie stars some of the top actors of Bollywood including Ajay Devgan, Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Jiah Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Nana Patekar, Manoj Bajpai. After Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, Katrina Kaif paired up with Ranbir Kapoor for the second time in the movie.

The court will give its verdict on the case on June 10, 2010 after receiving censor reports on the movie.
