Singh Is Kinng gets a clean chit from Sikh Authorities

Click above for more stills Singh Is Kinng, directed by Aneez Bazmi starring Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, was in the news regarding a non-existing controversy. In order to clear the rumors and know the whole truth, Bollywood Hungama spoke to Vipul Shah and here is what he had to say. "To begin with there was no controversy. Yesterday, a newspaper had carried an article suggesting some issues surrounding Singh Is Kinng. Apparently, the article stated that Akshay's look in the film had created resentment in the Sikh community. So in order to clear the air we had a special screening for some prestigious authorities of the Sikh community, including, Dr. Gurbachan Singh Bachan (University of Mumbai), Kulwant Singh (Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Dadar, Mumbai), Parbinder Singh (Sikh Brotherhood) S. Swaranjeet Singh (Sikh Media Watch), Sardar Manmohan Singh (Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Dadar, Mumbai), Manmeet (Actor and Model), and Jaspal Singh (Sikh Sangat of Mumbai). Now there were certain areas they suggested correction, which have been taken care of, Akshay has re-shot several scenes. But its impossible to do the whole film again," says Vipul. "Some crucial scenes were re-shot and they have given it a clean chit now. The press conference wherein Akshay, Aneesji, the Sikh Authorities, and I were present was to clear this confusion regarding the film. Akshay will be sporting a beard throughout the film like a proper Sikh," adds Vipul. Singh Is Kinng also starring Neha Dhupia, Sonu Sood, Sudhanshu Pandey, Ranvir Shorey, Kirron Kher, and Om Puri will release worldwide on 8 August 2008.
