Kolkata: The Mamata Banerjee government has reportedly banned the screening of a movie at the state-owned Star Theatre hall in Kolkata, allegedly because the film in question refers to the Park Street rape case.
The movie, '3 Kanya' is directed by Agnidev Chatterjee and even stars state Education Minister Bratya Basu, who is also a noted stage director.
According to sources, the movie portrays the state government in a bad light and hence, drew extreme reaction from the government, despite the fact that it was cleared by the censor board.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had drawn criticism for her comments against the rape victim, whom she blamed for the crime, even going to the extent of calling her a CPM cadre and the rape, a political conspiracy against her.
