Film actor and producer Ajay Devgn has agreed to remove the objectionable dialogues and scenes from his film Son of Sardaar before releasing it.
The actor made the promise in a meeting with Sikh religious leaders and others on Monday.
The film was involved in a controversy after the All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) and other Sikh groups objected to certain dialogues and said that these were portraying Sikhs in poor light. The AISSF had pointed out some dialogues that had poked fun at Sikh community.
Devgn had earlier maintained that he knew the culture and tradition of Punjab, especially of Sikhs, and would not show anything in the film that would hurt their religious sentiments.
In a statement released by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), the mini-parliament of Sikh religious affairs, it was stated that Ajay Devgn had agreed to omit the objectionable dialogues and scenes.
“I have explained my side to the SGPC committee. We will remove the objectionable portions,” Devgn told media at a press conference.
The actor told the SGPC sub-committee that his family came from Punjab and he knew the culture of the state and would not do anything to hurt the sentiments of the Sikh community.
Son of Sardaar is set to release on 13th November 2012 nationwide in the UK.
