Sikhs demand apology from Indian actor Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan

Mumbai, India: Saif Ali Khan’s Love Aaj Kal is all set to release on July 31. However it seems like the film might have just run into some more trouble with the Sikh community.

The actor plays a Sikh in a part of the movie and the Punjab Cultural and Heritage Board had pointed out certain issues with the film.

The Board’s president Charan Singh Sapra had pointed out that the community had a problem with Saif Ali Khan’s beard.

Sapra had also suggested that the part where Saif goes to the Gurudwara to woo his girl might be considered as objectionable.

At a meeting held on Saturday in Mumbai, Sapra said that the Board had decided to move to court until Saif apologies to all the members of the Sikh community. Apparently he has also threatened to stop the release of the film.

Not very long ago Saif Ali Khan along with his production team held a special screening of the film for members of the Sikh community where they had raised objections to Saif’s trimmed beard and a few scenes set in the Gurudwara.

While the Board is fine if the star does not re-shoot the film, Sapra has demanded an apology from Saif Ali Khan.
