Because of the political nature of the drama and the satirical comments targeting Communist Party of India (Marxist) which was the ruling party of West Bengal at that moment, the staging of the play was attempted to be banned by state authority. On March 14, 2011 the drama was scheduled to be staged Bansberia in the Hooghly district. The show was to start at 6 pm but the theatre group received an order from district administration where they were asked to cancel the show. Armed local police force with the directive of the additional district magistrate went there to stop the staging of the drama. They cited the violation of the code of conduct ahead of the upcoming election as the reason to stop the staging of the drama.
This action of political administration was criticised by state's intellectuals, theatre artistes and students' organisation. Theatre artistes, students gatherd in front of the Academy of Fine Arts and showed their protest. Theatre personality Bibhas Chakraborty told– "During the Singur and Nandigram episode, many plays that criticised the state government's decision, were stopped from being staged. Despite repeated requests, the chief minister did not initiate any step at that time"
