The matter is listed for December 19.

The petitioner society comprises members of the Kshatriya Koli community who have strongly object to the film, which they say misrepresents the lineage of the great Tanhaji Malusare, who has been purportedly shown as belonging to the Maratha community while according to the petitioners he is a Koli Maratha.

The petitioner has appealed to the court to issue an appropriate direction to the Central Board of Film Certification not to give the film a certificate for the release unless the director of the film Om Raut shows the true lineage of Tanhaji.

Apart from Ajay Devgn, the film stars Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, Jagapathi Babu and Sharad Kelkar in lead roles. It is slated for release on January 10.
