Sikh community files a case against 'Son of Sardaar' for demeaning dialogues

Added by harini on Aug 30, 2012

Ajay Devgn’s movie ‘Son of Sardaar’ might be one of the most hugely anticipated movies of the year but that hasn’t stopped trouble coming its way.

Recently All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) has urged the clergy to take action against actor-producer Ajay Devgn claiming that the Sikh’s have been shown in a bad light in the movie.

In a letter to Akal Takht head Gurbachan Singh, AISSF president Karnail Singh demanded action against Devgn for hurting the religious sentiments of Sikhs. The Akal Takht is the highest temporal seat of the Sikh religion.

Karnail Singh claimed that the trailer of the movie, that was recently released, has demeaning dialogues.

“The film's trailer has demeaning dialogues,” he said to IANS.

“In the film, the lead actor wears a Sikh turban but has the tattoo of a Hindu god on his chest. This is against Sikh principles,” he added.

He said that he has sent a legal notice to the filmmaker’s demanding removal of objectionable scenes. But apparently Ajay Devgn hasn’t responded to the notice yet.

The movie 'Son of Sardaar' is directed by Ashwni Dhir and based on Telugu movie 'Maryada Ramanna'.

The movie stars Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt, Juhi Chawla and Mukul Dev in lead roles.

The movie is all set to release on November 13.
