New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear on Wednesday a petition filed by Kerala actress Priya Prakash Varrier against an FIRs and a fatwa issued against her in Maharashtra and Telangana in connection with a Malayalam song in the movie Oru Adaar Love on the ground that it hurts the religious sentiments of Muslims.

Director N.P. Abdul Wahab and producer Joseph Valakuzhy Eapen are the other petitioners in this writ petition seeking apex court’s intervention.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Kanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud agreed to agreed to hear the matter on Wednesday after her counsel Harris Beeran sought an urgent hearing of the plea.

The petitioners said this is Varrier’s first movie and she is pursuing her B.Com. from Vimala College at Trichur district of Kerala. The song Manikya Malaraya Poovi has been misunderstood by people outside Kerala (non-Malayalam speakers) as it is being wrongly translated/interpreted and taken out of context, which is leading to the registration of multiple criminal cases against the petitioners.
