Bollywood actor Salman Khan is once again in the headlines all for wrong reasons. A plea has been filed in court seeking FIR be lodged against Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and others for allegedly using a casteist slur against the scheduled castes during the promotions of his last film Tiger Zinda Hai.
The plea has been filed before Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma and alleges that the accused persons had committed “atrocity” on the members of the caste and insulted them by making such remarks.
The matter has been put up for consideration on February 27 and has sought a reply from the Station House Officer concerned.
The complaint, filed by Harnam Singh, a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, alleged that the remark was made by Khan during a programme on a television channel while Kaif, “rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement, joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct.”
Singh said he had in December last year filed a complaint at a police station here, but no FIR has been registered yet, due to which he filed the application before the court.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Salman is currently busy in the shooting of his upcoming film Race 3. On the other hand, Katrina Kaif is busy with Thugs of Hindostan.
