A plea has apparently been filed before a city court today seeking FIR be lodged against Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and others for allegedly using a casteist slur against the scheduled castes during the promotions of his last film Tiger Zinda Hai.  The plea has been filed before Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma and alleges that the accused persons had committed “atrocity” on the members of the caste and insulted them by making such remarks.

The matter has been put up for consideration on February 27 and has sought a reply from the Station House Officer concerned. The complaint has been filed by a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, Harnam Singh, who has also accused Kaif of the “crime”. The complaint read, “rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct.”

The complainant had filed the complaint in December but no FIR was registered and hence he has now filed an application in the court.  Tiger Zinda Hai has done extremely well at the box office with the overall collection over 500 crores. The movie was helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar and was a sequel to Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger.
