High Court troubles ‘Thirumanam Enum Nikkah’
The Judge S Vaidyanathan admitted the petition by the Tamil Nadu Shia Muslim Jamath and ordered that the notice be returnable by June 3. The petitioner said "TEN produced by V Ravichandran of Aascar Films , portrayed Muslims in general particularly the Shia community in a demeaning manner."
Thirumanam Enum Nikkah (TEN) is said to be a romantic musical and has Jai and Nazriya Nazim in the lead roles, while Heebah Patel, Deekshitha Manikkam and Jamal play supporting roles. It has lovely music by Ghibran, which is already a hit.
TEN tells the story of a Tamil Iyengar boy falling in love with a Muslim girl. Director Anis has said in an interview that the film would break the myths surrounding different social and religious groups
Aascar Films Ravichandran said: "TEN has been passed by the censors with a clean U certificate. Will the censors allow the film to be cleared if there is something demeaning about a community? Some of the team members who made the film including its director are Muslims. We are trying to sort out the issue and announce a release date shortly."
