Case of the week: Ban 'Finding Fanny' because 'vulgar' word pollutes kids' minds [Update: DISMISSED]

A public interest litigation (PIL) was filed in the Delhi high court yesterday seeking a ban of the word “fanny” from promotional materials for, and songs, title and dialogue in the Bollywood film Finding Fanny, because of the “vulgar word ‘fanny’”, reported IANS.

The petition filed by Nandini Tiwari and the NGO Jai Jagriti Foundation, represented by advocate Abhishek Krishna, also questions the UA certificate given to the Deepika Padukone starrer, which they argue would pollute childrens’ minds because the dictionary definition of “fanny” was highly sexually explicit. It is set to be heard today before chief justice G Rohini and Justice RS Endlaw.

An online dictionary defines fanny as either slang for “the buttocks” in the US or Canada, or “the female genitals” in the UK.

Update: The Delhi high court has refused to hear the petition, reported Zee and others.
