Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Zero’ is out of troubled waters after the makers gave a clarification to BJP MLA who had raised the objection. The MLA appreciated their quick response and accepted their clarification.
BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa had objected to a poster of the film and threatened to file a police complaint. Sirsa has now accepted the clarification offered by the makers, reports news agency IANS.
Sirsa had objected to a poster of the film wherein the protagonist, played by Shah Rukh Khan, seems to be wearing a Sikh religious symbol Gatka Kirpan in his underwear. Sirsa, a Delhi MLA, had demanded its immediate deletion as it will hurt the religious sentiments of Sikhs.
Appreciating their quick response, Sirsa took to his Twitter account and wrote, “It’s good that you have clarified this in time. We accept your point. Anything that hurts religious sentiments should be clarified with clear communication.”
Spice, Zero’s PR and marketing company, has clarified in its response that no visual or image in the film has depicted the Kirpan.
They wrote, “The images show a dagger popularly known as ‘katar’ in the Indian-subcontinent and is nowhere close to a Kirpan that carries the distinguished blessing of being Khalsa.”
“The team Zero clarifies that they have been careful not to hurt the feelings of community and any concerned caused is completely inadvertent,” it added.
Your point is well taken. However, any misrepresentation related to Sikhism will hurt Sikh sentiments.

In a recent interview, King Khan revealed that he’s not a fan of fine dining or junk food, but loves this one item prepared by wife Gauri, and that is a special ice-cream.
He said, “I am not fond of junk food or desserts. I sometimes eat an ice-cream, or a chocolate. Gauri makes a nice ice-cream with digestive biscuits.”
SRK loves Hyderabadi Biryani, Lucknawi food, and has Tandoori rotis for dinner. And does he himself cook? You wouldn’t believe, but the the Bollywood Baadshah makes the softest chapatis.
