Petition filed against Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif for making casteist remarks

A petition for FIR has been filed in Delhi court against actors Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif for allegedly making casteist remarks during the promotion of 'Tiger Zinda Hai'. The plea, filed in the Patiala House Court, alleged that the actors had "committed atrocity" on the members of the caste and insulted and humiliated them by making the casteist remark. The complaint was filed by a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, Harnam Singh, saying that the remark was made by the superstar on television while Kaif, "rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement, joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct." Salman had used the word 'bhangi' on the reality show that hurt the sentiments of Scheduled Caste communities. The court listed the matter for consideration and also sought a reply from the Delhi police on the complaint.
