A FEDERAL regulator has been asked to consider revoking the Church of Scientology's registration as a charity in the wake of a damning documentary about the religion.

Prominent Scientologist and Hollywood actor John Travolta on Wednesday rejected claims in the American documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief that he was being held captive by the church which holds a "dirt file" on him.

Independent Senator Nick Xenophon is concerned by allegations in the film and has asked the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission to urgently review the church's registration.
