Amritsar, Punjab (April 08, 2013): In the wake of the ban imposed by various state governments on screening of ‘Sadda Haq’, the makers of the film met Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh and paid obeisance at Harmandar Sahib on April 07, 2013.
After the meeting, actor-producer of the film, Kuljinder Singh Sidhu informed media persons that the purpose of the visit was to meet the Akal Takht Jathedar regarding the ban on the film imposed by governments of Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi. The movie has not been screened in Jammu and Kashmir as well.
“We have requested the Jathedar to demand clarification from the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal as well as Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) as to why they decided to impose a ban on the film. A committee formed by the SGPC had reviewed our film and given its nod, but now they are not supporting us,” Sidhu said.
He said that the Jathedar has assured that the issue will be discussed in a meeting of the five high priests.
The star cast also performed ‘ardas’ at Akal Takht.
