In a massive relief to Bollywood star Salman Khan, the Rajasthan High Court on Monday stayed police examination versus him for purportedly making casteist comments during an interview.
A petition was submitted in a Delhi court on February 22, seeking to lodge an FIR against stars Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, as well as others for purportedly making a casteist statement during the promo of the flick Tiger Zinda Hai.
The court listed the matter for consideration for February 27 and also sought a reply from the Delhi police on the problem.
The plea, submitted to the Patiala Residence Court, alleged that the implicated individuals had “dedicated atrocity” on the members of the caste and also insulted and also degraded them by making the casteist remark.
The complainant Harnam Singh, a previous Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis. affirmed that the comment was made by Khan during a program on a television network while Kaif, “instead of objecting at the offensive and also an aloof declaration, joined the charged number 1 (Khan) in insulting as well as abusing the sufferer with her conduct.”
Created by Yash Raj Films and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the follow up to 2012’s Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai generated over Rs 330 crore at the domestic box office. With Salman and Katrina in lead duties, the movie also starred Kumud Mishra, Anupriya Goenka, Sajjad Delafrooz, Paresh Rawal, Angad Bedi and Girish Karnad to name a few. While the critics slammed the film, Salman’s followers left no rock unturned in making the movie a success.
