Shahrukh Khan‘s much-awaited film zero launched its trailer a few days ago and has impressed the viewers as the trailer is trending on YouTube and has crossed 60 million views. The twist comes here, Congress leader and spokesperson Charanjit Singh Sapra filed an FIR against Shahrukh Khan for hurting the religious sentiments of the Sikh community.
In Zero’s trailer, a scene where the use of Kirpan is depicted has hurt the sentiments of the Sikh people as for them Kirpan is an ‘article of faith’
Singh has filed a written complaint against director Anand L Rai and also against Shahrukh Khan as he is the lead actor and one of the producers of Zero. The Congress leader demanded to remove the controversial scene and to pull down the trailer of Zero with immediate effect.
