‘Maharaj’, which has been in controversy for the past few days, has released on 21 June on Netflix. Although the film was scheduled to release on June 14, it was banned a day before its release. After nearly four days of hearing, now the Gujarat High Court has lifted the ban on this film. The case started when Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal accused the film of hurting religious sentiments. Meanwhile, the news came that the makers of the film have taken the censor certificate.

It has come to light that the Central Board of Film Certification had seen the film in the year 2023 and passed the film on May 29 last year. It was argued by the makers that the film was to be released on a digital platform, which does not require a censor certificate, but even then they certified it.
