Guwahati, November 6, 2018:
Aanand L Rai’s upcoming venture, ‘Zero,’ starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif is on a buzz as the trailer raised a controversy regarding Sikh sentiments.
The trailer that hit the internet on November 2 has enraged the Sikh community because the trailer put up SRK wearing Gatra Kirpan (Article of Sikh Faith) in one scene.
General Secretary of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, Manjinder Singh Sirsa lodged an FIR against SRK and Rai for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Sikh community.
Sirsa in his letter said, ‘the trailer shows SRK wearing a Gatra Kirpan which can only be worn by an Amritdhari Sikh person as per the Sikh Rehat Maryada. He has been receiving many complaints from the Sikh Sangat. The promo needs to be stopped without any delay.’ He has also complained to Central Board of Film Certification regarding the matter.
