Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgn feels honoured to be portraying a Sikh character in his much awaited Diwali release, Son of Sardaar. Hailing from Amritsar himself, the actor shares a close bond with Punjab.
The actor was accused of presenting Sikhs in a bad light in his yet to release film Son of Sardaar after the trailer of the film was released.
Speaking about the controversy Ajay Devgn said, “My film Son Of Sardaar does not hurt anybody’s sentiments. I’m from Punjab and I have a lot of respect for the community and culture as any anyone else and the last thing I would do is to hurt anyone. In fact I’m very proud of the community.
“We have made this film under the guidance of a lot of knowledgeable people so at no point you will find any element of disrespect. The protagonist of the film is a Sardaar so the film will showcase a very positive projection of the community. If you could just wait for the release and then come up with your comments and opinion. Trust me, we all will be proud of the film,” added the 43-year-old actor.
Eros International will release Son of Sardaar, directed by Ashwini Dhir starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt and Juhi Chawla on 13th November 2012 in UK cinemas.
