Ajay Devgn met up with a panel of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) and complainant Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad, president of a faction of the All India Sikh Students Federation, Punjab information and public relations minister Bikramjit Singh Majithia and discussed the plot of the movie and stressed that the film had no aim to hurt Sikh sentiments.
“The movie is about Sikhs. I am a Punjabi and hurting sentiments of Punjabis will mean hurting sentiments of my own family. I can never do that,” said Ajay Devgn.
Objections were raised over certain dialogues in the movie as well as the fact that Ajay Devgn has a Lord Shiva tattoo on his chest even though he portrays role of a Sikh in the movie.
Ajay Devgn said that the scenes which were objectionable will be deleted.
“There were some promos on YouTube to which there were objections. Since I have great respect for the Sikh community, I have come here and shown them the promos and listened to their objections. I have promised to do the needful,” 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.
