A complaint has been filed in the court of commissioner for people with disabilities against Hindi films Laal Singh Chaddha and Shabaash Mithu for poking fun at differently-abled people.

The complaint was made by Dr Satendra Singh, co-founder of Doctors with Disabilities, who is also affected by 70% locomotor disability, which restricts the movement of a person due to disability of bones, joints or muscles. However, no confirmation on the matter was received from the social justice and empowerment ministry.

According to the notice, the court of commissioner for persons with disabilities has sought comments from the directors of the films, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Union information and broadcasting ministry on the matter.

The complaint alleges that the films violate provisions of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 through demeaning remarks against specially-abled people.
