New Delhi: The Tis Hazari court on Monday dismissed a criminal complaint seeking FIR registration against Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.
A criminal complaint had been filed against the two actors for allegedly hurting religious sentiments by entering the sets of a temple wearing shoes while shooting for reality show ‘Bigg Boss 9’.
Though the court dismissed the complaint, it has allowed the complainant to produce pre-summoning evidence on October 14.
The complaint had been lodged by advocate Gaurav Gulati who sought registration of an FIR against the two actors, Colors channel and director and producer of ‘Bigg Boss 9’ for alleged offences under sections 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings), 298(uttering words with deliberate intent to wound religious feelings) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The police had earlier said, in an Action Taken Report (ATR) that Shah Rukh and Salman were shooting at a makeshift temple, which was part of the sets in a studio for the reality show and had no intention to hurt religious sentiments.
