Supreme Court sermons filmstars- Do not to indulge in fighting in a public place


December,6,2015: The Supreme Court on Monday asked actor Govinda to show big heart and apologise to a fan for slapping him at a film set in 2008.

A bench of Justices T S Thakur and V Gopala Gowda asked the actor and former Congress MP to settle his dispute with complainant Santosh Rai, saying the film stars are considered as role models and should not indulge in fighting in public place.

The actor does not need to do in real life what he does in reel life, the court said. “We enjoy your films, but cannot tolerate you slapping somebody,” the bench said after watching the video clip of the incident on a mobile phone and suggested the actor to apologise to Santosh.

The court fixed February 9 as the next date of hearing on Santosh’s appeal against the Bombay High Court order which had quashed his private complaint lodged against Govinda before a metropolitan court in Mumbai.

The complainant sought action against Govinda for offences under Sections 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (1) (Criminal intimidation) of the IPC for the incident on January 16, 2008.
