Jacqueline Fernandez’s Getup In The ‘Dishoom’ Teaser Has Offended The Sikh Community

Published on 15 June, 2016 at 8:48 pm By

Rohit Dhawan has been working on his second directorial venture ‘Dishoom’. The film stars Varun Dhawan, John Abraham, and Jacqueline Fernandez. The teaser of the song ‘Sau tarah ke’ was released this week and almost immediately ran into trouble.

The video shows Jacqueline in a short white dress with a kirpan wrapped around her waist. As the kirpan is one of the 5 compulsory kakaars worn by the Sikhs, they have been angered by the teaser.

Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the Gurdwara Management Committee’s General Secretary, wrote and open letter to CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani, asking that the song be removed from the film. He has also asked that the ‘Dishoom’ team apologize for making a mockery of the kirpan in the song.

He wrote:

“Objecting strongly to the ‘Beadbi’ of Kirpan, a pious symbol of Sikhism we asked Sh. Pehlaj Nihlani, the chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification, to instruct the removal of the video of a song titled “ishq ka marz” from the upcoming movie “Dishoom”. The song depicts a semi-clad actress, Ms. Jacqueline Fernandez, dancing with a Kirpan, one of the five compulsory Kakaars worn by a practising Sikh; dangling in front of her legs and supported by a cloth belt worn around the waist by the actress and thereby made the mockery of the sacredness and respect of the religious symbols of Kirpan.



This act is hurting sentiments of Sikhs as we are already numerous complaints in this matter from various Sikh bodies. I request CBFC to instruct director to immediately remove all the trailers/videos of the aforesaid song uploaded at youtube.com or other websites; either delete the song from the movie or re-shoot its video sans the wearing of Kirpan supported by the actress and to instruct the director and cast of the movie to make public apology to the Sikh community for the deliberate insult done to a respectable Sikh religious symbol. If CBFC fails to take appropriate action in this context, DSGMC will be compelled to initiate criminal proceedings against the director and case of the ‘Dishoom’ as well as against the CBFC.”

 

‘Dishoom’ is slated to release on 29 July, 2016. The song ‘Sau tarah ke’ was composed by Pritam, while the choreography credits go to Bosco Martin.
