Lucknow: A case was filed against veteran film actor Kamal Haasan in a court in Varanasi on Friday for his comments on "Hindu terror".

The case has been filed under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) that pertain to defamation, attempt to cause offence, intent to hurt religious feelings and to incite communal disharmony.

In an article in a Tamil magazine that came into public domain on Thursday, the film actor has observed that "Hindu right-wing groups have unprecedentedly started indulging in acts of violence".

The court has listed the case for hearing on Saturday.
