A Delhi court has again summoned filmmaker Leena Manimekalai in a case filed against her controversial portrayal of Hindu goddess Kali in the poster of her film Kali. In an order dated August 29, Civil Judge Abhishek Kumar of the Tis Hazari court took into account the arguments of the petitioner’s counsel Raj Gaurav, who argued that the application filed by him the previous day was pending.

The counsel also asked to inform the respondents (Manimekalai and others) through email as well as through WhatsApp. After hearing the matter, the judge ordered: “In view of the submissions made, further summons should be issued by any means including email and WhatsApp.” The next meeting in the case will be held on November 1. Earlier in July, the court summoned Manimekalai.

The petition, filed by advocate Raj Gaurav, said the film’s poster, which shows Goddess Kali smoking, not only hurts the religious sentiments of ordinary Hindus but also goes against the basics of morality and decency. Apart from the director, notices and summonses have also been issued to his company Touring Talkies Media Pvt Ltd.

The controversy over the film’s poster escalated when Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra said she had every right to depict Kali Devi as a person, as a meat eater and an alcoholic, as each person has their own unique way of worshipping.
