Ekta Kapoor New Delhi, Aug 17 (IANS) The clamour to ban Ekta Kapoor’s film “Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum” just got stronger, with a Congress parliamentarian Friday demanding a ban on the movie for offending the sensitivities of the Christian community in Goa.

Goa’s lone Rajya Sabha MP, Shantaram Naik of the Congress, Friday reiterated the demand for a ban on the film, which shows a Christian priest, played by actor Chunky Pandey solemnising the wedding of a dog with a bitch.

“A scene shows a priest sprinkling holy water when a bitch and a dog engage in sexual act. Actor Anupam Kher in the film says Mother Mary said that his dead mother was reincarnated as a bitch. There are many other dialogues which can hurt sentiments of the Christian community,” Naik said in the Rajya Sabha during Zero Hour.

“These scenes have hurt the religious sentiments of the Christian community which holds a priest in high esteem. A priest is not only bestowed with serious religious duties but is supposed to be guide and philosopher to many members of the community,” the MP further said.

On Thursday, the Congress formally demanded a ban on the comedy film and the arrest of Ekta Kapoor on similar ground.

Congress legislator Reginaldo Lourenco said the Goa government should ban the film in the same manner it banned the controversial film “Da Vinci Code”, for offending religious sentiments.
