‘Lucifer’ poster in which actor Mohanlal beat a khaki-clad policeman using his leg has kicked up a controversy. In a letter to CM Pinarayi Vijayan, the Kerala Police Association said that the poster disrespecting the police force. Association has also sought measures to include statutory warnings for scenes of violence against cops in movie posters.
The poster shows a handcuffed Mohanlal kicking a khaki-clad policeman on face. This is one of the posters from the Prithviraj-directed movie Lucifer that Mohanlal fans are going gaga over. “In the quarter-length poster, which was published in a leading daily of Kerala, a police officer in uniform was seen kicked on the chest with a tagline that gives a wrong message to the public,” the letter stated.
The poster, which appeared in many newspapers on Tuesday, bears a tagline, which is the dialogue from the movie: ‘How dare you touch my guys’.
