Dhoom 2: Aishwarya Rai’s Kiss to Hrithik Roshan- Obscene?

Bollywood is a land of ivory towers. Here, everything they show has no relationship with the reality. So, in Dhoom 2, Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan had a deep kiss scene and as usual, it had no relationship with the real condition of Indian society. This scene was included just to arouse many viewers and perhaps the bikini dresses of the two leading actresses played a major part behind the success of Dhoom 2 in the box office. Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan did not mind kissing each other as they could bag a successful and super hit movie under their belts. The producer and the director were surely overjoyed to see that they could arouse the viewers to come to cinema halls to watch Dhoom 2. Finally, many viewers enjoyed the scene.

Not everyone is happy- at least lawyer, Shailendra Dwived is very unhappy with this scene and he has filed a case. News24 wrote:

A court in central India on Friday heard statements from a lawyer complaining that an on-screen kiss by Bollywood belle Aishwarya Rai and co-star Hrithik Roshan contravened the country's strict laws against obscenity.

The court in the city of Indore recorded statements from a local lawyer, Shailendra Dwivedi, who filed the complaint over last year's biggest Bollywood grossing film, Dhoom 2 (Have a Blast 2).

The case is set to be heard on January 25.

"I have already submitted details of the film, the controversial scene, alongside newspaper write-ups and photographs," Dwivedi, a self-confessed moral conduct crusader, told AFP.

"My conscience made me file this case. The movie cannot be watched by Indian families as it depicts vulgarity," he said.

If the case from a female lawyer then it would surely become stronger. Even if Shailendra Dwived fails to win the case, it is highly unlikely that this will be the last case against Bollywood movies.
