Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) wants some scenes “hurting Sikh sentiments” to be dropped from upcoming Hindi movieFlying Jatt’.

In a press release issued here on Wednesday, SGPC additional secretary Diljit Singh Bedi said the objection related to the hero’s turban, attire, and ‘Khanda’ sign on the back. Last November 12, the SGPC chief secretary wrote to the film’s producers about it. Last December 30, SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar wrote to the producers of the Tiger Shroff movie again. “But they are not bothered,” said Bedi. “If they release the film with the objectionable scenes, they will be responsible for the consequences.”

Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, the movie also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and professional wrestler Nathan Jones in lead roles. Bedi accused the producers of trying to provoke Sikhs. The SGPC plans to take legal action.
