Shahrukh Khan’s 'Zero' lands in legal trouble as petition filed against the movie in Bombay HC

The Shahrukh Khan-starrer movie has been questioned after the alleged portrayal of ‘Kirpan’, a holy Sikh dagger in the movie’s poster, which has hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikh community


Shahrukh Khan’s new movie, Zero is all set to hit the theaters next month throughout the country. The focus of the film is a dwarf named ‘Bauua’ whose character is played by Shahrukh. However, the movie has landed in trouble even before its release as one of the posters allegedly portrays ‘kirpan’, a holy Sikh dagger and this has hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikh community.

Accordingly, a police complaint was filed against the actor for insulting the community’s religious beliefs. In addition to that, a petition against the film has also been filed. The major issue with the poster is that Shahrukh Khan is in his vests and he is allegedly holding a ‘kirpan’ in his hand.

Thus, the petitioners have demanded that the objectionable scene must be removed from the movie.

Mumbai Congress Vice President Charansingh Sapra had written had a letter to Mumbai Police and had registered a complaint against the movie. After which, a lawyer Amrutpal Singh has filed a petition against the movie in the court.
