Mumbai (Web Desk): After Salman Khan and Shilpa Shetty, Katrina Kaif has also come under fire for laughing at the ‘casteist’ joke cracked by her Tiger Zinda Hai co-star Salman at a promotional event for the film.
According to Hindustan Times, a petition has been filed in a Delhi court seeking an FIR to be lodged against the actors and others for the casteist remark against Schedule Castes.
The complaint, filed by Harnam Singh, a former chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, alleged that the remark was made by Khan during a programme on a television channel 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."
The court has listed the matter for consideration for February 27, 2018.
