A court in New Delhi on Wednesday reserved its order on a private complaint against Bollywood stars Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan for hurting religious feelings after they were allegedly shown wearing shoes on the set of a temple.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vandana Jain set June 4 for delivering its order on the complaint filed by lawyer Gaurav Gulati, who sought action against the two actors on charges of hurting religious feelings.
The lawyer has told the court that he noticed on a YouTube post dated December 15, 2015 where the actors wore shoes on the sets of a Kali temple while shooting for a reality TV show. An idol of the goddess was seen in the backdrop, he said.
The plea also sought action against the producer and director of the reality show and the TV channel.
Delhi Police, in its action taken report, has said that the promotional event was not shot to disturb sanctity of a religious place or to hurt religious sentiments and in view of the facts and report, no cognizable offence is made out against the actors.
