Ajay Devgn’s upcoming movie ‘Son of Sardaar’ has come under scrutiny from the Sikh community, as they claim that the movie portrays Sikh’s in bad light.
On Tuesday All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) has urged the clergy to take action against actor-producer Ajay Devgn for hurting the religious sentiments of Sikhs.
But actor Ajay Devgn, who plays a Sikh in the movie, said that movie doesn’t hurt anyone’s sentiments.
“My film ‘Son of Sardaar’ does not hurt anybody's sentiments. I'm from Punjab and I have lot of respect for the community and culture as anyone else and the last thing I would do is to hurt anyone. In fact, I'm very proud of the community,” said Ajay Devgn.
The actor said that the movie was made under the watchful eyes of ‘knowledgeable people’.
“At no point you will find any element of disrespect. The protagonist of the film is a Sardaar so the film will showcase a very positive projection of the community. If you could just wait for the release and then come up with your comments and opinion. Trust me, we all will be proud of the film,” he concluded.
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.
