Sunny Leone’s web series – Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story which is based on the life of the actress has been in trouble as Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) having issues with “Kaur” in the title.
It has been reported that the Committee has objected on using “Kaur” in the title because that might hurt Sikh sentiments.
Diljit Singh Bedi, SGPC’s additional secretary and spokesperson, had told Times of India that the usage would hurt Sikh sentiments as Sunny did not follow the teachings of the Sikh Gurus. Hence, she had no right to use the title “Kaur”.
“Kaur is a very respectable and exalted name given by Sikh gurus to Sikh women. A person who didn’t follow the teachings of Sikh gurus shouldn’t use the word Kaur as this could hurt Sikh religious feelings. Sikhs will not allow her to use it. She should tender a public apology,” Bedi said.
While, President of the Istri Akali Dal, Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “She is using the word Kaur for making her biopic a success, unaware of the fact that the same could hurt Sikh religious sentiments.”
Karenjit Kaur- The Untold Story of Sunny Leone will talk about her journey from an Indian girl growing up in a middle class Sikh family in Canada to becoming an adult film actress and finally entering Bollywood.
Apart from Sunny herself, the series features Raj Arjun, Rysa Saujani, Karamvir Lamba, Bijay Jasjit Anand, Grusha Kapoor, Vansh Pradhan and Marc Buckner.
The web series premiered on 16th July on ZEE5.
