The two big superstars Salman and Sharukh in the promo of Bigg Boss 9 are seen in the Kali temple wearing their shoes. Shah Rukh Khan gives a special appearance on the show. This triggered Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha.
The scene was a recreation from the movie ‘Karan Arjun’ and the episode was to be aired on Sunday. The leaders of Mahasabha demanded to remove that particular scene before the broadcast.
Bharat Rajput, district president, of Hindu Mahasabha had given a written statement to Colors channel. Which reads,
“I am shocked to see that a scene with Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan inside a Kali temple with their shoes on is being broadcast on TV for such a long time but no one has taken any action against it. Now if we say anything, we will be termed intolerant. But our religious sentiments have been hurt and before the final episode is broadcast on Sunday, the scene should be completely removed.”
National vice-president, Ashok Sharma of Hindu Mahasabha said,”If the actors were not that careful, at least the makers of the promo should have taken care that it is a religious set and should have not been tampered with. Our district president has also written to Colors on its feedback email id and asked them the reason behind such a blunder.”
“Not only temple, people don’t even wear their shoes in other religious places like mosques and gurudwaras. This is insensitive of all of you to have aired such content on your channel just for TRPs.” Reads the email.
