A short-film maker, Ullhas PR, has filed a complaint against Bollywood actor Aamir Khan for referring to Delhi’s policemen as “thulla” (a derogatory slang term) in his movie PK, reports NDTV
Ullhas, who filed the complaint on Sunday in East Delhi’s New Ashok Nagar police station, said:
“Aamir has called a police officer ‘thulla’ in a scene from the film. I was wondering that if a complaint can be filed against Delhi CM for using the same word then why has no one filed a complaint against him.”
The complaint comes weeks after a controversy erupted over the usage of the term by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Ulhas also clarified that he is not a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
He said that action on his complaint will make it clear whether the Central Government is hounding the Delhi government or the Delhi Police actually feels offended by this term.
Asked why he filed the complaint against Aamir only and not the makers of the film, Ullhas said:
“Aamir has used the term in the film. I don’t have any personal enmity against Aamir… Neither I’m a friend of Kejriwal. The law is same for all.”
The Delhi-based short film-maker, had earlier filed a complaint against Amitabh Bachchan for “not singing the National Anthem in a proper manner”. He has also filed a complaint against Kejriwal with the Home Ministry for using ‘Kejriwal Sarkar’ in advertisements instead of ‘Delhi government’.
