Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone starrer Fighter lands in legal trouble due to a kissing scene in the movie. According to India TV, an IAF officer sent a legal notice to the makers regarding a kissing scene in Fighter. As per the officer, kissing in uniform was disrespectful as it embodies the highest ideals of sacrifice and discipline.
Notice to Fighter makers
It read, ‘‘It embodies the highest ideals of sacrifice, discipline, and unwavering dedication to protecting our nation. By utilizing this sacred symbol for a scene promoting personal romantic entanglements. The film grossly misrepresents its inherent dignity and devalues the profound sacrifices made by countless officers in service of our nation.”
It also added, “Moreover, it normalises inappropriate behaviour in uniform, setting a dangerous precedent that undermines the moral and ethical standards expected from those entrusted with safeguarding our borders. Kissing in uniform, on a runway which comes under the purview of a technical area, while portrayed as romantic, is considered grossly inappropriate. Unbecoming of an IAF officer, as it contradicts the high standards of discipline and decorum expected from them.”
For the unversed, at the end of the movie, Hrithik and Deepika’s characters kiss after winning a war. The two are seen in air force uniforms.
