Goddess Kali Poster Row: The petition against the makers of the documentary film Kali will now be heard in a Delhi court on August 29.

On Saturday, petitioner and advocate Raj Gaurav also filed an application to take additional documents on record. which states that the plaintiff wishes to file additional documents which are tweets that are directly related to his case and which may affect the merits of the case. It said that the petitioner could not submit these documents while filing the suit, as the filmmaker had made these tweets later. These include screenshots of tweets that were made on July 7 and 21.

Earlier on July 11, Additional Senior Judge Abhishek Kumar had issued summons and injunction notices for the trial. It was said that before passing any order it is necessary to know the side of the filmmaker.
