The Karnataka government has prohibited the release of Annu Kapoor's film 'Hamare Baarah' and the film has been prohibited in the state for two weeks, or until further notice. The state government claimed that the decision was made after reviewing pleas from several organizations and seeing the trailer. It went on to say that the video had been prohibited to prevent communal tensions in the state. The ruling complies with Karnataka Cinema Regulations Act 1964, Sections 15(1) and 15(5).
