The Uttarakhand High Court also refused to stay the release of forthcoming film on the same day.
Swami Darshan Bharti of Garhwal had demanded that the film should be banned. The High Court said Bharti should go to the District Magistrate of Rudraprayag with his complaint. A single bench of Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan was told the film should be banned as it hurt the people who were affected by the 2013 flash floods that ravaged Kedarnath besides hurting Hindu sentiments. The petitioner pleaded that the film promoted love jihad.
