No./234/2007 New Delhi
Ref: Your letter dt. 2.12.90 ? financing of films by
Govt of India ? story submitted by you ?namely,
'Mahabharat' ? objections regarding
The undersigned is directed to refer the above letter and state that
the Government has examined
your proposal for financing a film called
'Mahabharat'. The Very High Level Committee
constituted for this purpose has been in consultation
with the Human Rights Commission, National Commission
for Women and Labour Commission, in addition to
various Ministries and State Governments, and have formed
definitive opinions about the script.
Their observations are as below:
1.In the script submitted by you it was shown
that there were two sets of cousins, namely, the
Kauravas numbering hundred and the Pandavas numbering
five. The Ministry of Health and
Family Welfare has pointed out that these numbers are
high above the norm prescribed for the families by
them. It is pointed out that when the Government is
spending huge amounts for promoting family planning,
this will send wrong signals to the
public. Therefore, it is decided that there shall be
only three Kauravas and one Pandava.
2.The Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs has
raised an issue whether it is suitable to depict
kings and emperors in this democratic age. Therefore,
it is decided that the Kauravas shall be
depicted as Honorable Members of Parliament ( Rajya
Sabha) and the Pandava shall be depicted as a
Honorable Member of Parliament (Lok Sabha)
3.The manner of birth of Kauravas is suggestive
of human cloning, a technology banned in India. It
must be changed to normal birth.
4.The National Commission for Women has
objected that the father of
Pandavas, one Sri Pandu, is depicted as bigamous, and
there is only one wife for the Pandava in common.
However, with the reduction in number of Pandavas
this issue can be addressed.
5.The Commission for the Physically Challenged
has observed that the portrayal of the visually
impaired character 'Dhritharastra' shall not be
derogatory. Therefore it is decided that the
character shall not be shown as visually impaired.
6.It is felt that showing the Pandava and the
Kauravas as gamblers will be anti-social and counter
productive. Therefore, they should be shown to have
engaged in horse racing. (Hon. SC has held racing not
to be gambling)
7.The Pandavas were shown as working with the
King of Virat desh without receiving any salary,.
According to the Human Rights Commission, this amounts
to bonded labour. This must be corrected at once.
8.In the ensuing war, the character 'Abhimanyu'
was shown as fighting. The National Labour Commission
has observed that, war being a hazardous industry, and
the said character being 13 years old, it can be
construed as a case of child labour. This must be
9.The character 'Sri Krishna' is wearing a
peacock feather, an offence under the Wild Life Act.
This must not be depicted. Also, Smt Maneka Gandhi has
refused permission for using any elephants
or horses in the war scenes.
10.In pursuance of the Memorandum of Ministry of
Finance regarding austerity measures, it is informed
that in the battlefield sequences, only ten soldiers
will be allowed for each side.
Also, all the characters must be shown to have
obtained a valid license under the Arms Act.
You are therefore requested to modify the script
along the lines
indicated above and resubmit it to the undersigned at
