No relief to Ranveer, Arjun

No relief to Ranveer, Arjun

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday declined to grant any interim relief to Bollywood actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor over an FIR filed against them and other film personalities for using "obscene" and "abusive" language during a comedy event 'called AIB Knockout' in 2015, PTI reports from Mumbai.

A bench of justices R M Savant and Sarang Kotwal directed the actors' lawyer to seek the assent of the Acting Chief Justice V K Tahilramani's court for the matter to be heard along with two other related pleas.

One of these two pleas were filed by comedian Rohan Joshi of AIB, a comedy collective, seeking that a related FIR against him be quashed.

The other plea is a PIL filed by a law teacher from the city.

The PIL seeks action against the organisers and participants of the show, and also urges the high court to direct the state authorities to issue guidelines to monitor such programmes on YouTube and similar video networks.
