‘Manmarziyaan’ (2018) is garnering great reviews from critics, but the Sikh Sangat of Ambala is demanding that the film be removed from theatres and a FIR be lodged against lead actors Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu, along with the writer, producer and director of the film. Certain scenes from the film are being questioned, and the Sikh Sangat of Ambala say that religious sentiments have been hurt.
Speaking to TOI, the Sikh Sangat of Ambala said, “The filmmakers have not only hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikhs, but they have also made an attempt to distort the Sikh principles. This is not the first time when a film is attacking the Sikh identity, earlier as well there have been films which have targeted the Sikhs. We will strongly oppose the screening of this film in our area, we urge the Sikhs worldwide to unite and stand against this film.”
‘Manmarziyaan’ released last Friday.
