Zero: Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment files caveat in Delhi HC after Sikh body sends legal notice

Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film Zero had recently come under fire for allegedly hurting Sikh sentiments. ANI reports that Khan's banner Red Chillies Entertainment has now filed a caveat in Delhi High Court in response to a legal notice sent to them by  Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).

On 5 November, general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa filed a complaint against the makers of Zero for showing the Gatra Kirpan, which is sacred to the Sikhs as an ordinary dagger. He demanded that the particular scene and poster be withdrawn. Sirsa also wrote a letter addressed to Rai and has said that if the "objectionable scenes" are not removed then the Sikh community will stage protests to stop the screening of Zero in cinemas.

The film's PR team has written to him saying no visual or image in the film depicted the Kirpan and it was not the makers' intent to hurt any religious community.
