Petition filed in Bombay High Court against Shah Rukh Khan


A petition has been filed in the Bombay High Court seeking action against actor Shah Rukh Khan and makers of the film ‘Zero’ for allegedly hurting sentiments of the Sikh community.

Petitioner Amrita Singh Khalsa, an advocate has sought against the actor and movie makers, refers to the film’s trailer in which Shah Rukh is seen wearing a vest and shorts, with a garland of Rs 500 notes around his neck and a ‘kirpan’ in gatra tied diagonally across his body. Khalsa took exception to this scene and referred to the historical and cultural importance of kirpan (a sword or small dagger carried by Sikhs).

The petition has sought a direction to the police to initiate action against Shah Rukh and others under Indian Penal Code section 295 (A), pertaining to deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings or beliefs. The petition is likely to come up for hearing on November 19, according to the high court’s website.
