Now this will be some very exciting news for all Akshay kumar fans. The Khiladi’s next release Singh Is Bling has received positive response from Sikh religious leaders.
Back in 2008 when when Akshay Kumar had donned the turban to play a Sardarji in Singh Is Kinng, he had to appease organisations which objected to the length of his beard and the way his turban was tied. Ajay Devgn too received a lot of flak for sporting a Shiva tattoo on his chest while playing a Sardar in Son of Sardar. They took serious offence stating that it hurt religious sentiments.
On the basis of just the trailer and songs, Sikh organisations have have raised objections to Akshay’s turbaned act in Prabhudheva’s Singh Is Bliing. In a bid to pacify the protesters, Akshay Kumar called leaders and prominent members of various Sikh organizations from Punjab and Delhi to Mumbai for a private screening of Singh Is Bliing. Says a source, “Rather than face protests a week before release, Akshay wisely decided to take the organisations into confidence now itself. He flew down the members at his own cost and showed them the film.” Apparently, the leaders are fully satisfied that there is nothing to offend any community in SIB. Infact all the leaders went back happily and gave the film a thumbs up.”
Directed by Prabhudeva, Singh Is Bling is scheduled to release on 2 October 2015. Tell us how excited you are for Singh Is Bling in the comments section.
