High Court allows release of Dum Maaro Dum

MUMBAI: The Panaji bench of the Bombay High Court today disposed off a petition seeking ban on the release of Ramesh Sippy's Dum Maaro Dum after the filmmakers told the Court that controversial portions of the film were deleted.

A division bench of Justice SC Dharmadhikari and Justice FM Reis, rejected the petition filed by Savio Rodrigues, allowing the release of the movie.

In his petition, Rodrigues had claimed that the film shows Goan women and the state in bad light and its release will affect the state tourism.

Rodrigues also sought deletion of a dialogue from the movie, which says "In Goa, liquor is cheap and women cheaper." Bipasha Basu has said the dialogue in the film.

Fox Star Studio, the co-producers of the film, however, assured the Court that the controversial dialogue would be deleted from the film and the word 'women' has been replaced with 'relationships' in the film's national promos.

The counsel for the studio said that the censor board had given 'A' certificate to the movie, and that the film did not promote drugs in Goa but was based on the fight against drug trade.

Fox Star Studio official Dina Duttani, who was present at the hearing, told reporters that the firm was gearing up for the film's global release on 22 April.

The movie will be released in 20 countries at 350 international locations and at 1,000 theatres and multiplexes throughout India.
