Mumbai: The Bombay high court has kept the hearing of a petition filed against actor Shah Rukh Khan and filmmakers of upco-ming movie Zero on November 30.

The petitioner had alleged that the religious sentiments of the Sikh community have been hurt in the trailer and posters of the movie.

 

Amritpal Singh Kha-lsa, who is an advocate by profession, had filed the petition earlier this month, seeking a direction to the film’s director and producers to delete scenes where the lead actor, Mr Khan, is seen wearing a  kirpan, a dagger carried by Sikhs.

The petition also so-ught a direction to the Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC) not to grant certification to the movie or to revoke it if it has already been given.

Mr Khalsa on Monday mentioned the petition before a division bench of Justices B.P. Dhar-madhikari and S.V. Kotwal, which posted it for hearing on November 30. The petition refers to the film’s trailer in which Mr Khan is seen wearing a vest and shorts, with a garland of Rs 500 notes around his neck and a kirpan in gatra tied diagonally across his body. Mr Khalsa took exception to this scene and referred to the historical and cultural importance of kirpan, saying it is worn after taking ‘rehat maryada’
