Diljit Dosanjh controversy: Punjabi singer Diljit Dosanjh has run into controversy days ahead of the release of his movie, Welcome to New York. A case has been registered against him in Mumbai and Amritsar for hurting religious sentiments of Sikhs through one of the songs he has sung in the upcoming film.Amritsar resident Jasjeet Singh filed a criminal miscellaneous application in the court of chief judicial magistrate against the singing sensation for lending his voice to the song, ‘Pant Mein Gun’. According to the petitioner, Dosanjh has disrespected the Sikh community by his “actions”. In his petition, Singh has alleged that the lyrics of the song go against the principles followed by Sikhs, and the singer should have shown respect towards the teachings of Sikhism before singing the song. Pant Mein Gun has been composed by Sajid Khan and Danish Sabri, with Khan as a co-singer.This is for the second time the movie has got into trouble even before its release. Two days ago, union minister Babul Supriyo demanded ‘Ishtehar’ to be again dubbed in another voice. The romantic number has been sung by Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The BJP leader questioned producers roping in Pakistani artists in view of mounting tension on the Indo-Pak border, when there was no dearth of talent in the Hindi film industry. He also targeted another Pakistani singer Atif Aslam for a number belted out by him in a recent Salman Khan starrer.Meanwhile, the Amritsar court has scheduled the case for hearing on March 31. No one from the production team of the movie could be reached for comments. Welcome to New York is directed by Chakri Toleti and produced by Pooja Films and Wiz Films. Starring Sonakshi Sinha and Dosanjh in lead roles, it is slated for release on Friday.
