Mumbai- Ajai Sinha's film Khap—A Story of Honour Killing which hit
theatres on Friday is under controversy. The director along with the
entire cast and crew of the film are under threat in Haryana.


The Khaps in UP have boycotted the screening of the film in theatres
across Haryana and Punjab. Naresh Tikait, Bharatiya Kisan Union and
Baliyan khap leaders have suggested banning the film on charges that
the film has dishonoured the Khaps.

It is likely to have a harmful impact on brother-sister relations.
Leader of Gadwala khap—Har Kishan Malic as well as Choudhry Suraj Mal,
leader of Battisa khap have threatened to begin an agitation against
the screening of the film, which revolves around honour killings.

Sinha admitted that he received numerous threatening and unpleasant calls.
