Members of the Public went star struck after Bollywood actors showed up to the Gurpurab celebrations in Mumbai. The event hosted by SGPC Mumbai and SGPC Amritsar drew the 5 Takht Jathedars along with many Bollywood film actors.
Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and his father were present at the event along with Mika, Jitendar, Aysuhman Khurrana, Urvashi Rautela, and others. The event was going really well up until some members from the sangat hoarded the Bollywood actors and started taking selfies wildly. The attention of the event suddenly shifted with all eyes on the actors and people running up to them to take pictures. The mis-management of the event did not go unnoticed as pictures and videos went viral on whatsapp with Sikhs unhappy that disrespect of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji occurred. The biggest rule of any Sikh event is that all should be treated equally but the Mumbai event gave special treatment to the Bollywood actors.
The media had overwhelmed the venue with so many cameras causing a massive disturbance with the flashes. The event ended up turning from a Gurpurab celebration to a Bollywood event.
The actors drew lot eyes towards them causing a disturbances in the event. The Jathedars present on stage even appeared to be star struck while they were honoring the actors. While the actors were on stage, random people came up and started to get pictures with them.
Things even became shocking when one actress named Urvashi was told by a Sikh man next to her to take the Kirpan out and pose for pictures. Post the actors, the event became a picture taking frenzy. The actors are celebrities and some of them posed as they would at any event and forgetting that this was a religious event.
All the actors were hoarded by their fans at the event who could care less about what was happening in the Darbar Hall but rather focused on taking pictures with the celebrities.
Things went a bit over board when Urvashi an actress touches feet of Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh for quite some time in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
At the advice of the Sikh man sitting next her, Urvashi takes the kirpan out of the holder and poses for pictures. The general rule is that the Kirpan only comes out of the holder for defense purposes and never otherwise.
The actress open the Kirpan and also touches feet of the Jathedar in presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji which is against the general rules.
Fans ruin the program by hoarding the actors.
