Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon Thadani, choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan and comedian Bharti Singh have embroiled themselves into a controversy. If the latest reports are anything to go by, the Amritsar Police has booked these three celebrities for allegedly hurting religious sentiments. It all happened after the three, on Farah Khan’s YouTube comedy show, used the term ‘Hallelujah’ and that irked certain members of the Christian community. Reportedly, a case under Section 295-A IPC has been registered with the Ajnala Police after the complaint, along with video evidence, was submitted.
Sona Masih, also known as Sonu Jafar, the general secretary of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee and president of the Christian Samaj Front, filed the complaint. In a conversation with The Tribune, SSP Vikramjeet Duggal confirmed the news. Sonu Jafar, on the other hand, alleged that the trio mocked a pious word like ‘Hallelujah’ on their show called Backbenchers. Before taking such action, members of the Christian community held a protest on the occasion of Christmas in Anjala, Amritsar. The FIR was only lodged after the police officials thoroughly investigated and examined the video.

Sonu was quoted as saying, “This has hurt the sentiments of the Christian community and we sought stringent action against them.” We await further updates on this case.
On the work front, Raveena Tandon is all set to make her comeback in KGF 2, co-starring Yash and Sanjay Dutt. Farah Khan, on the other hand, will be directing the remake of Bollywood film, Satte Pe Satta. Bharti Singh is seen on her comedy show.
