Feb 13, 2016: SGPC, The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee yesterday stopped the shoot of the biopic ‘Sarbjit’ after the bouncers accompanying film stars allegedly misbehaved with the media inside the Golden Temple complex
Trouble began at around 9:30am, when actor Aishwarya Rai entered the Parikarma of the shrine to begin the shoot. Things turned ugly when the bouncers accompanying her started misbehaving with the local photojournalists, who were trying to grab a shot of the star.
First, the bouncers jostled with photographers and even tried to snatch the camera. The media persons later took up the matter with the SGPC, which asked the crew to wrap up the shoot. The entire crew then went inside a serai.
Though, the SGPC additional secretary Daljit Singh Bedi claimed that they were aware of the shoot, a section of the SGPC officials maintained that the SGPC had not given any formal permission for shooting inside the shrine.
