Case filed against AR Rahman and Anil Kapoor

Tapeshwar Vishwakarma, general secretary of Slum Dwellers’ Joint Action Committee, on Tuesday filed a complaint case in the court of chief judicial magistrate Raghavendra Kumar Singh in Patna against actor Anil Kapoor and music director A R Rahman, charging them with defaming slum dwellers by calling them slumdogs and Indians as dogs in the award-winning movie, Slumdog Millionaire. They, thus, violated the slum dwellers’ rights to live a dignified life, the complaint said.

Though the court has fixed February 5 as the next date of hearing, it has not taken cognizance of the complaint per se and asked the complainant to produce evidence in support of his allegations.
