The DCP added that complainants alleged that the filmmaker tarnished the image of Bhopalis. It said that it was an insult to many renowned people of the city who had proudly affixed Bhopali in their name like Barkatullah Bhopali, Kaif Bhopali, Asad Bhopali, Sahir Bhopali and former President Shankar Dayal Sharma who had proudly claimed that he was a Bhopali.
