Controversy[edit]

The film's release delayed several months due to expletive contents in one of the songs penned by Anand Bakshi; the film's producer, lyricist and Super Cassettes got notices from the Supreme Court asking for the removal of the contents, which the court referred to as "Irrelevant use of vulgar, indecent, lewd and coarse language in films, especially in the present film where the expletive has been hurled at a policeman, only serves the purpose of corrupting the public morals." The film released only after the song was removed from the film.[1]
