The Patna High Court on Tuesday banned the release of Mallika Sherawat starrer 'Dirty Politics' over some objectionable scenes, a government lawyer said.

After hearing a petition seeking a ban on the release of 'Dirty Politics', a division bench of the court ordered the concerned authorities not to release the film till the objectionable scenes were removed.
The court has also issued a notice to the Central Board of Film Certification in this connection.
The petitioner has informed the court that the film's lead actress Mallika Sherawat has draped India's national flag on her body, thereby insulting and dishonouring the national flag.
Directed by K.C. Bokadia, the film is slated to release on March 6.
