After the controversy over his stand on endorsing Pepsi, Bollywood's legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan has landed in trouble once again for allegedly promoting false beliefs in a television commercial.
Activist Hemant Patil has lodged a complaint against the megastar and demanded that a police case be filed against him under Maharashtra Prevention and Eradication of Human Sacrifice and Other Inhuman, Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Act, 2013.
According to Patil, the ad promotes the belief in ghosts and the use of magic to ward them off.
A leading daily quoted Patil's lawyer, advocate Wajid Pathan as saying, "The food-product company has come out with a 45-second advertisement on the issue without publishing any disclaimer before or after the broadcast."
According to the petition, Patil had to move court after the Bandra police refused to register a complaint against the superstar.
The complaint will be heard ny magistrate Sita Kulkarni on April 18.
