Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film 'Zero' landed in hot water when Akali Dal MLA Manjinder Sirsa accused the makers of hurting Sikh sentiments. Not long after, the makers sent a letter where they clarified that it was a misunderstanding. They had even tweeted their response to the MLA, who had filed an official complaint. Now Sirsa has finally broken silence on the matter. He said that he is happy that the team has clarified the issues on time and that he accepts their response. Sirsa also mentioned that anything that hurts religious sentiments should be dealt with immediately. Here's what he tweeted, "It’s good you have clarified this in time. We accept your point @SpiceSocial1. Anything that hurts religious sentiments should be clarified with clear communication."
Here is the original complaint by the MLA and the maker's official letter that countered his complaint.
The whole row had sparked off due to one particular poster featuring Shah Rukh Khan which had what looked like a Kirpan in it. Sirsa had alleged that the makers cannot defile a holy object like that, to which 'Zero' team had clarified saying that it was not a Kirpan but actually a Katar, hence it is not hurting Sikh sentiments in any manner.
