OUCH: Salman Khan’s “Bhangi” Comment Now Puts Katrina Kaif In Legal Trouble

During the promotions of Tiger Zinda Hai on a TV show, Salman Khan had allegedly made a casteist slur, comparing his dancing skills to a "bhangi."

While Salman might have loosely used the term, but it didn’t go down well with the Valmiki Samaj. And hence a complaint was registered against the actor on December 21, 2017.

Almost two months since the controversy, Katrina Kaif has also invited legal trouble for the episode.

A petition has been filed in the Patiala House Court in Delhi  by Harnam Singh, former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, on Thursday. They want to now lodge an FIR against Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan for the latter’s casteist remark.

The complaint says that "rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement, Katrina Kaif joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct."

For those who are coming in late, SpotboyE.com had told you that Shilpa Shetty had also invited legal trouble back in December as Salman had made the casteist slur on a reality show hosted by Shilpa. After protests, Shilpa had rendered an apology to her fans.

Coming back to the recent complaint against Katrina Kaif, Patiala House Court has listed the matter for consideration on February 27 and also sought a reply from the Delhi Police on the complaint.
