Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero has been mired in controversy after the Sikh community raised objections on the poster and trailer of SRK holding a kirpan which is a holy dagger. A petition was filed to remove the scenes which had kirpan. In response to the petition, the makers of Zero, on December 19, filed an affidavit in Bombay High Court to confirm that the scenes in question have been altered.
Stating that Zero did not have kirpan but an ornamental dagger, Red Chillies Entertainment said, “Despite the fact that the film and its poster depicted only an ornamental dagger and not a ‘Kirpan’, steps have been taken by the respondent to alter the relevant scenes. The portions in question have been altered through visual effects to depict an ornamental sword.”
A petition was filed seeking action against Shah Rukh Khan, Zero’s producers Gauri Khan, Karuna Badwal, director Aanand L Rai, Red Chillies Entertainment Pvt Ltd and the Central Board for Film Certification’s (CBFC) chairperson and CEO for hurting Sikh sentiments.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif starrer Zero is set to release on December 21, 2018.
