A Delhi court has admitted the complaint filed by CRPF sub-inspector against the producers of Bollywood movie "Newton".
The complaint was filed by the sub-inspector for "depicting CRPF in poor light".
The court has posted the case for July 19 for pre-summoning evidence of the complaint.
Newton was India's official entry to the Oscars. And Rajkummar Rao won the Asia Pacific Screen Award -- given out by the Brisbane city council -- for his performance in the film.
The movie is a political satire weaved around an honest election officer's attempt to conduct a free and fair poll in a conflict-hit area of Chhattisgarh.
