In his press release, the SGPC chief Kirpal Singh Badungar said that the SGPC has formed a penal to scrutinise the contents of the contents of the movie. The panel includes SGPC’s executive member Ram Singh, member Rajinder Singh Mehta, deputy secretary Simarjit Singh and religious studies’ in charge Sukhdev Singh.
He said some scenes in the film related to the Darbar and Akal Takht appeared to be frivolous.
