Bollywood has irked Sikhs once again by releasing the poster of new film ‘Santa Banta’. The film stars Vir Das, Boman Irani, Neha Dhupia and other known bollywood actors. The film is being directed by Akashdeep Sabir and produced by Viacom 18 and distributed through Eros International.
Reportedly, the film is about two men in friendship and how they get into trouble while being with each other. The film will aim to completely destroy the Sikh image and look to set a new stereotype of Sikhs of being stupid.
The Delhi Gurdwara Committee has objected to the film and gave a warning to the producers to stop the production of the film. Currently, there is a supreme court case which looks to ban jokes on Sikhs.
The outrageous part about the poster is that it shows 2 men dubiously dressed like Sikhs with their under garment on while holding a revolver.
The Sikh community in particular wants to what the tagline of the film “Live Life Singh Style” Means. After attacking the character of Sikhs, now bollywood is looking to attack the last name Singh given by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
The Delhi Committee will be bringing it to the attention of Gurbachan Singh to take further action. The Delhi Committee will also take court action to stop the film from releasing.
Sikhs worldwide are looking at the film as an attack on the committee through Cinema.
