A Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court on Monday granted bail to filmmaker Anonno Mamun and actor Shaheen Mridha in a case filed under the Pornography Act over obscene dialogue in a recently released film named Nabab LLB.

Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Shahinur Rahman granted them bail.

A team of Cyber and Special Crime department arrested the duo from the capital’s Mirpur area on December 25 after police’s cyber unit inspector Nasirul Amin filed the case with the Ramna police station.

Later, they were produced before a Dhaka court, which sent them to jail.

In a scene of Nabab LLB, actress Sporshia was seen going to a police station to file a case as a rape victim.

A police sub-inspector, played by actor Shaheen Mridha, asked her offensive questions about the rape. The police objected about that scene in the case.

Half of the film was released on December 16 in over-the-top media service named ‘I Theatre’ using the internet. The rest of the film was scheduled to be released on January 1, 2021.

Besides Shaheen Mridha, Shakib Khan, Mahiya Mahi, Orchita Sporshia and Shahiduzzaman Selim acted in the film.
