SC commission to summon Aaja Nachle team

December 01, 2007 15:54 IST

Dancing diva Madhuri Dixit's [Images] comeback venture Aaja Nachle ran into further trouble on Saturday with the National Commission for Scheduled Castes deciding to summon all those associated with the controversial lyrics used in the film.

Shortly after the Uttar Pradesh and Punjab governments banned the film in their respective states, the commission said it would issue summons to all those associated with the film on Monday and ask them to submit affidavits explaining their position.

"We will summon all the people who have performed, written and cleared the lyrics as well as the producer and director," said Commission chairperson Buta Singh.

"The damage has already been done. The lyrics go against the two laws passed by the Parliament and the Constitution," he said.

After the commission gets the affidavits and witnesses of those summoned, it will submit its report to the Parliament, he said.
