Actor Akshaye, along with producers Kumar Mangal Pathak and Abhishek Mangal Pathak to present in court for their upcoming movie Section 375

Directed by Ajay Bahl, the film is based on Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code. In the movie, Richa Chadha plays a public prosecutor fighting to get justice for her client, who claims she was raped by a filmmaker (played by Rahul Bhatt), being defended by Akshaye Khanna’s character in court.

An advocate has filed a petition in the court, claiming the movie’s trailer and promos portays court procedures in a wrong way.

According to the reports, the petitioner also slammed the makers over a scene in the film, in which advocates are seen taking cross-statements of a rape survivor and openly asking her objectionable questions in the courtroom.

The advocate stated that “such cross-statements are never recorded in an open court but only in-camera“.

Akshaye, along with producers Kumar Mangal Pathak and Abhishek Mangal Pathak, has been asked to appear before the court on September 9.
