During a conversation with TOI on Tuesday, SGPC's additional secretary Diljit Singh Bedi said that the "naked kirpan" could only be baptized Sikh, but the scene in the movie and the posters show the splinter as a common dagger. "At least a style actor, Shah Rukh Khan, should know this or need to do thorough research before filming the scene," he said.
In the upcoming venture, Khan plays the role of vertically-challenged man.
Bedi stated that SGPC requested that the scene be immediately removed from the film and its posters showing the actor who wore the kirpan withdrawn. "The SGPC will not allow the film to be released with scenes that hurt Sikh's religious feelings," he said.
Secretary General Manjinder Singh Sirsa from Delhi Sikh Gurdwara also filed a complaint about abuse of Sikh's faith and filed a police complaint seeking FIR registration against Khan and film director Aanand L Rai.
"It's a dangerous trend, and Sikh would not do that," Bedi warned.
