A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Ashok S Kinagi, while rejecting the petition filed by G Shivashankar, said “Which law says that a person who is convicted under an offence and has undergone sentence is prohibited from acting in a film?” Advocate Rooda Veershetty appearing for the petitioner argued that “The People of Karnataka are completely opposing him acting in the Kannada film.” To which the bench said “Who gave you authority to represent the entire state of Karnataka? People cannot impose censorship.”  The bench in its order said “Petitioner has not shown any provisions of law under which respondent 3 (Sanjay Dutt) incurs a disqualification from acting in the films. Similarly petitioner has not shown any provision of law preventing resp 2 (Hombale Films) from allowing resp 3 (Dutt) to act in the film. No illegality, is pointed out there is no merit in the petition and accordingly it is dismissed.
