MUMBAI: Renowned adult star and Bollywood actress Sunny Leone’s upcoming web series ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone faced its first trouble as a committee of the Indian Sikh community Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) objected to the use of “Kaur” in the title of the actor’s upcoming biopic.
The Indian SGPC’s additional secretary and spokesperson Diljit Singh Bedi said that the usage would hurt Sikh sentiments as Sunny did not follow the teachings of the Sikh gurus. Hence, she had no right to use the title “Kaur”.
“Kaur is a very respectable name given by Sikh gurus to Sikh women. A person who didn’t follow the teachings of Sikh gurus shouldn’t use the word Kaur as this could hurt Sikh religious feelings. Sikhs will not allow her to use it. She should tender a public apology.”
Istri Akali Dal president Bibi Jagir Kaur, echoed Bedi: “She is using the word Kaur for making her biopic a success, unaware of the fact that the same could hurt religious sentiments.”
