Request recorded against Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif for claimed casteist comment amid Tiger Zinda Hai advancements


Lawful inconveniences and Salman Khan can be securely spelled in one breath. The 52-year-old as of now has a rundown of pending bodies of evidence against and a crisp one is headed clear. While Tiger Zinda Hai delighted in a significant thundering accomplishment in the cinematic world, its lead performers Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif appear to have arrived in a soup. A request was recorded on Thursday under the watchful eye of a Delhi court looking to hold up an FIR against Salman, Katrina, and others for purportedly utilizing a casteist slur against the planned ranks. The court has recorded the issue of thought for 27 Feb.

According to the complaint, Khan had used the word during the promotion of his film Tiger Zinda Hai.

The plea, filed before Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma, alleged that the accused persons had “committed atrocity” on the members of the caste and insulted and humiliated them by making the casteist remark. The court put up the matter for consideration on February 27 and sought a reply from the Station House Officer concerned on the complaint.

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, Salman Khan is busy shooting for Ramesh Taurani’s Race 3Starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor and Saqib Saleem in the lead, the film shall release on Christmas this year.
