The game was banned by the Supreme Court in 2014. After this, there was a demand to start the game in the entire state. The government allowed the game again by bringing an ordinance but this ordinance was also challenged in the Supreme Court. In this game coins or notes are stuck in the horns of the bulls. Bulls or bulls are instigated and released into the crowd. People try to control him. It also offers a cash reward. In this game, the animal is also abused in many places. Because of this many organizations were against the game. Apart from this, the game is also dangerous for the people. Although the film is not based on the game, it is related to the sense of revenge and emotion of people inside a buffalo.
