The Uttarakhand government had earlier constituted a panel headed by Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj to look into objections being raised about upcoming film Kedarnath, a love story set against the backdrop of the 2013 deluge, an official release said. A PIL was also filed recently in the Uttarakhand High Court alleging that the film was an “ugly taint” on the Himalayan shrine. However, the makers of the film have appealed to people not to jump to conclusions about its content by just seeing its teaser or trailer.
