The few person who were present on the Zero set said that the smoke was seen rising out of Film City in Goregaon. No one was hurt in the fire. The cause of the fire is yet not clear.
However, before the release of film Zero, it has already run into trouble with some Sikh groups raised the objection to a scene where Shah Rukh can allegedly be seen wearing a Kirpan, a Sikh holy symbol. Amritpal Singh Khalsa filed petition, sought removal of scenes where SRK aka Shah Rukh Khan was shown wearing a ‘Kirpan’ – a part of Sikh faith . He said, “The “display of Kirpan in such a way is blasphemous.”
Bombay High Court will hear the petition filed against Badshah Shah Rukh Khan and the film’s makers today on 30th November.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero is all about the story of a dwarf, played by Shah Rukh, who goes from Meerut to NASA, in a typical rags-to-riches story.
