Prem Chand alias Premji of FLAC, said he had recently written a letter to President Pranab Mukherjee demanding immediate ban on the just released film as it glorifies the superstition.
The Emraan Hashmi starrer, directed by Kannan Iyer and co-produced by Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj, as well as tele-serials being telecast on the theme will "only glorify the culprits engaged in inflicting mental and physical torture on innocent women on the pretext of being a witch," Premji told reporters here.
He said that 14 states including Bihar, Bengal, Odisha, Chattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Rajasthan, Meghalaya, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana were affected by this problem.
