Ajay Devgn in ‘Son of Sardar’!

After facing lots of controversies about its theme, Ajay Devgan’s upcoming flick ‘Son of Sardar’ is finally on the door step to get screened before the Sikh community in Amritsar. This decision is taken by actor-producer Ajay Devgan who is going to meet the SGPC (Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee) officials, Sikh lawyers and members of All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF), accompanying his co-star and friend Sanjay Dutt.http://dailybolly.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif

The initial conflict concerning SOS arose when senior lawyer Navkiran Singh issued a legal notice against the makers of the movie on 16th August owing to the cause that the movie hurts the religious sentiments of the Sikhs and screens them in a bad light. Though he had appealed in the notice to remove the objectionable parts of the movie within 7 days of receiving the legal notice, but the makers took no hurry on that.

As a result, matter went more serious and On August 27, Karnail Singh, President of All India Sikh Student Federation (AISSF) sent a letter to Jathedar Akal Takht Giani Gurbachan Singh requesting him to take severe action against Ajay for his profane comments against the community that reveals the film’s trailer.  Reportedly, the trailer shows the character of a Sikh in a bad light and includes humiliating terms like “If Sikhs were not there then who would have invented abuses…” and “Without Sardaars, on whom would have jokes been made”.

Besides, they also complained that lead actor of the movie, Ajay Devgan wearing a turban like a Sikh and with a tattoo of Hindu Lord Shiva on his chest goes anti-Sikh. That’s what made Ajay take the issue seriously and hence he decided to take this step. The prior statements of Ajay on this issue that his movie Son of Sardaar’ does not hurt anybody’s sentiments and that he has enough respect for the community and culture, went in vain too!

Now it’s to be seen if the Sikh community gets rid of their complaint after watching the screening and we hope they will.But, what you think readers?
