Red Chillies Entertainment, in an affidavit filed in Bombay High Court, stated that the scenes which showed Shah Rukh Khan's character holding an 'ornamental sword' in the film Zero have been removed, reports ANI.

The Aanand L Rai film had run into trouble with the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee after it accused the makers of hurting religious sentiments of the Sikh community by showing the holy kirpan as an ordinary dagger in one of the posters of the film.

The makers told Bombay High Court that relevant steps had been taken to alter the scenes through visual effects. The sword, which according to the production house, was mistaken for a kirpan by the displeased committee, has now been altered to look like an ornamental dagger.

Amritpal Singh Khalsa, an advocate, had filed the petition early in November, seeking a direction to the director and producers to delete said scenes.

The decks are now clear for the release of the Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif-starrer on 21 December.
