Claiming that Sikhs were being shown in a bad light in the film "Son of Sardar", the All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) has urged the clergy to take action against actor-producer Ajay Devgn.
In a letter to Akal Takht head Gurbachan Singh, AISSF president Karnail Singh demanded action against Devgn for hurting the religious sentiments of Sikhs.
The Akal Takht is the highest temporal seat of the Sikh religion.
Karnail Singh Tuesday said the film, to be released in November, had blasphemous remarks against Sikhs.
AISSF has sought registration of a police case against the filmmakers.
"The film's trailer has demeaning dialogues," Karnail Singh said.
"In the film, the lead actor wears a Sikh turban but has the tattoo of a Hindu god on his chest. This is against Sikh principles," he said.
Karnail Singh said they had sent a legal notice to the filmmakers and asked to delete the objectionable scenes. But Devgn had not responded to the notice, he said.

im a sikh and i know that ajay is a hindu but still he makes a movie about sikhs...infact in my country where people used to think that hindu and sikhs are the same is now learning the difference thanks to these type of movies...what so wrong in it???? ...we cannot aspect him to get a khanda tattoo just for the movie!!!! he too has a religion ..
Being a Sikh, I do not find anything offensive in the trailers. I watched it three times to see what was offensive but couldn't find anything. I actually found it entertaining and can't wait for the movie.
All I can say to the people who have issues is to open your eyes and look at yourself and those around you who claim to be Sikhs, I highly doubt any of you are idealistic Sikhs.
I just saw the promo. There is absolutely nothing insulting in it!
Just cause the movie has a sardar in it, Sikhs decide its derogatory. Like really?! Seriously?!
I know of many many sardars who drink and have tats. Grow up people. Freedom of Speech.
really, the actor is hindu, how can they expect him to remove the tattoo, there are many actors who play Sardar Character and do so many wrong things, like drinking, making love openly, kissing, not wearing kadaa. and you guys object over a tattoo,. there are many Sardars in USA, UK and Canada, that have took their turban off and cut their hair very short, is that ok in Sikh Religion. why isn't there no action being taken on them, oh wait but they are not hindu or have tattoo, which is more important
