Bollywood Baadshah Shah Rukh Khan is gearing up with his dwarf film, Zero. However, the film had landed in controversy as the Sikh community got offended for depicting a Gatra Kirpan worn by King Khan. Now, SRK’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment approached Delhi Court against a complaint issued by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).

The production house urged the Court to hear their side of version and only then take a stance. “I have received a number of complaints from the Sikh Sangat for hurting the sentiments of the Sikhs by movie ZERO directed by Aanand L Rai. In the film, Shah Rukh Khan has been shown wearing “Gatra Kirpan” (Article of Sikh Faith) and their movie promo has created outrage among Sikh community worldwide,” said Manjinder Singh Sirsa.
Earlier, the Zero makers had issued a statement to subside the controversy which could cause a dampen in the film’s release. “Your concern is duly noted and we wish to respectfully clarify that the film does not depict a Kirpan. The filmmakers have been careful not to hurt the feelings of any community including the Sikh community,” read the statement.
