Bombay High Court asks CBFC to examine ‘Zero’ once again


As the controversy around the kirpan continues, the Bombay High Court (BHC) has asked the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to examine Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Zero’ further more, after allegations of hurting the religious sentiments of the Sikh community were made.

Reported on Mid-day, the court ordered CBFC to provide a report by the 18th December, which is response to a petition filed by Amritpal Singh Khalsa, who has called for the removal of any scenes where Khan’s character is seen with kirpan, as the Khalsa states the “Display of the Kirpan in such a way is blasphemous.”

At the start of November, a legal notice had been sent by Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) general secretary, Manjinder Singh Sirsa to Red Chillies Entertainment (Khan’s home banner production) for the same.
