Saif Ali Khan’s home production “Love Aaj Kal” has run into trouble because of the sardar get up of Saif who plays the hero in the film. Deepika Padukone plays the female lead. Imtiaz Ali directed the film.
Charan Singh Sapra, President of Punjabi Cultural And Heritage Board,has objected on Saif’s beard look in the film, stating that Sardars do not sport a trimmed beard as has been carried by Saif Ali Khan in the film as seen in the promos and posters.
Sapra sent a notice to Saif Ali Khan, Imtiaz Ali and Dinesh Vijan regarding the trimmrd beard issue. He warned that if the said look was not corrected, then, the members of the Punjabi Cultural And Heritage Board will inform all the major Sikh organizations to protest and stall the release of the film all over the country through legal and other means.
