What’s a good film without a dash of controversy surrounding it? The latest film to come into the limelight for all the wrong reasons is Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie, Singh Is Bliing. Apparently, the Akal Takht, the highest religious body of the Sikh community, is unhappy with the way the religion has been portrayed in the trailer. The opening shot of the trailer itself equates the Golden Temple with chicken and whiskey as the things Punjab is most famous for. This has not gone done well with the religious body and they also have an issue with the way Akki uses a ‘kada’ in the trailer. They feel that the movie misrepresents and insults the sentiments of the Sikh.
We are sure Akshay would never intentionally offend any religious sentiments. Nowadays, it seems to have become incredibly difficult to even talk about a religion without somebody taking offense.
Prabhudheva’s Singh Is Bliing starring Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Kay Kay Menon and Amy Jackson is slated to release on 2nd October, 2015.
