Default Aligarh (2015)




Aligarh (2015)

Storyline

Set in the state of Uttar Pradesh and based on true events, the plot revolves around Dr Shrinivas Ramchandra Siras who taught Marathi at Aligarh Muslim University. He was sacked from his position of Reader and Chair of Modern Indian Languages, on charges of homo***uality. A sting operation was conducted by a TV channel which showed him in an embrace with a rickshaw puller, at his house inside the campus.

On January 31, 2016, a controversy broke out as the film's trailer was rated with an "A" certificate by India's Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which would allow the trailer to be screened on television only after 10 PM IST, citing that the film's theme and subject, which is related to homo***uality, is against India's culture, and kids and teenagers should not be allowed to view it. Film's director, Hansal Mehta took to social media and press to vent his anger, threatening that he will go to the Appellate Tribunal and appeal the adult rating of the trailer arguing that an "important subject like his film's should reach everyone (sic)." Pahlaj Nihalani, the Chairman of CBFC, ignored the threat saying that it was all publicity stunt.

Nawazuddin Siddique was first approached to play the lead role but declined. This was due to a problem he had with Hansal Mehta during the shooting of Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar in 2000.
