The case was finally registered on Friday at the Mithanpura police station in Muzaffarpur district in pursuance of an order passed by Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate (East) Shailendra Rai on September 12.
In his complaint, the petitioner Sudhir Kumar Ojha, a local layer, had drawn the attention of the court towards the title of Salman’s film wherein he alleged the title of the movie made fun of the holy festival of Navaratri.
