Ahead of its release this weekend, the makers of ‘Zero’ have bowed down to pressure by altering particular scenes featuring a “kirpan”.
DNA India reports that the makers filed an affidavit in Bombay High Court on Wednesday, confirming the scene had been altered. 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 previously filed last month against the makers of ‘Zero’, for allegedly hurting the sentiments of the Sikh community. The petition at the time said, “Display of the Kirpan in such a way is blasphemous and the scenes should be removed immediately.”
