The complaint in this connection was lodged by one Basant Gehlot, Lal said, adding that the matter was under investigation.

The Aamir Khan-starrer film has invited sharp reactions and protest from right-wing Hindu outfits who have demanded a ban on the screening of the film, alleging that it hurts their religious sentiments
