A month before its nationwide release, Akshay-Kumar-starrer ‘Singh Is Bling’ has run into trouble with the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), which has stated that “some of its content hurts Sikh sentiments”.

Akshay’s production company Grazing Goat Pictures and film producer Ashvini Yardi have been asked to halt the release until they have clearance from the SGPC. “Akshay Kumar or whoever the producers of this movie are must submit a print of the movie to the SGPC sub-committee we have formed for reviewing controversial films. Only after a clearance report from it should the movie be released,” SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar stated here on Thursday.

Makkar said if the sub-committee recommended deletion of some scenes, the producer must comply. SGPC executive member Rajinder Singh Mehta leads the sub-committee with secretary Roop Singh, additional secretary Daljit Singh Bedi and assistant secretary Balwinder Singh Jaura as other members. The SGPC president said the decision to serve notice on the film producers was taken after Akal Takht jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh objected to some scenes.

Makkar agreed with the jathedar that if the producers released the movie without recommended cuts, they’d themselves be responsible for any outrage from the Sikh community. Asked if he had informed the producers, Makkar replied: “Well, I am informing them through the media now.”
