Delhi court will today (June 6) pronounce its order on a criminal complaint filed against Bollywood celebrities Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan for supposedly hurting religious opinions by entering the sets of a temple wearing shoes while shooting for reality show Bigg Boss 9.
The hearing had been previously on June 4 deferred by the court .
In an Action Taken Report (ATR), the police had previously said that Shah Rukh and Salman were shooting at a makeshift temple, which was part of the sets in a studio for the reality show and had no intention to hurt religious sentiments.
The report was filed following court’s order on the complaint lodged by promoter Gaurav Gulati who sought registration of an FIR against both performers, Colors station and director and producer of ‘Bigg Boss 9’ for alleged offences under sections 295A (willful and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings), 298(voicing words with deliberate intent to wound religious feelings) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The complaint alleged that in a video being circulated, Shah Rukh and Salman were seen wearing shoes on the sets of the temple while shooting 9 where the idol can be seen in the background.
The complaint against the two celebrities was filed in the Roop Nagar Police Station in the national capital.
