Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan landed in trouble for allegedly hurting the Sikh sentiments before the release of his much-awaited film ‘Zero’. A complaint was filed against him for wearing a Kirpan in one of the sequences in ‘Zero’ trailer, which was released on November 3.
The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) General Secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa has registered a criminal complaint against SRK and film’s director Aanand L Rai.
Sirsa mentioned in the complaint that Shah Rukh wears 'Gatra Kirpan" (Article of Sikh Faith) in the trailer which has created an outrage among Sikh community worldwide. He further added that as per the Sikh customs only Amritdhari Sikh person can wear Gatra Kirpan.
The FIR stated that the trailer where SRK is seen wearing 'Gatra Kirpan' should be stopped without any further delay.
