Teachers Unions Plea Against Sorry Teacher Film
A film with the title Sorry Teacher is being made by Anand and directed by Sri Sathya with Kavya Singh playing the role of a teacher. The film is due for release on August 24. The promos and trailers of the film are being aired.
However, social activists and teacher associations approached the State Human Rights Commission on Tuesday demanding a ban on Sorry Teacher, as the film revolves around a female school teacher and her students, stating that film’s promos and posters were sleazy. They stated that they were objecting to the film right from its shooting stage. They also stated that the film was originally titled I Love You Teacher and was changed to Sorry Teacher after the teachers associations raised objections.
All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA), United Teachers Federation (UTF) and other student organisation leaders and activists requested the SHRC that their petition be treated as a special case as the movie would release on August 24.
Admitting the case, the SHR Commission has summoned the censor board regional officer to be present on August 23 and submit a report on this issue.
