Refusing to stay a West Bengal Government order directing the distributors not to display the posters showing actress Paoli Dam in sensuous positions, Justice Dipankar Dutta directed that the distributors and the state to file affidavits in support of their contentions.

The distributors claimed that the film has already got a U/A certification and as such the state government cannot ask it not to show the posters of scenes from the film.
The state Advocate General, Anindya Mitra, opposed the plea claiming that such posters should not be displayed in public places, where children also go.

The film, to be released on April 20, by director Vikram Bhatt is a thriller and revolves around the character played by Paoli Dam.
