Reportedly, The case was filed in the Shivpuri District and Sessions Court in Madhya Pradesh by a lawyer named Suresh Dhakad, who claimed that the episode with the objectionable scenes was aired on Sony TV on April 21.
The case has been registered against the show host Kapil Sharma and Sony TV Director MP Singh under the OT Act and Excise Act. The matter will be heard on October 1.
“In the courtroom scene, the co-star comes onstage with a bottle of liquor and urges other people to taste it. This scene outrages the dignity of the court. It should have also featured a statutory warning, which it did not,” the lawyer told reporters.
