Recently a case was filed against Salman Khan and Shilpa Shetty for allegedly using the word bhangi on a public platform that hurt the sentiments of the Scheduled Caste community.
The complaint was filed in Andheri Police station by Navin Ramchandra Lade, General Secretary of the Rojgar Aghari Republican Party of India.
After this complaint a fresh petition was filed in a Delhi court on Thursday seeking to lodge an FIR against Katrina Kaif also.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, the plea, filed in the Patiala House Court, alleged that the accused persons had “committed atrocity” on the members of the caste and insulted and humiliated them by making the casteist remark.
The complaint, filed by Harnam Singh, a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, alleged that the remark was made by Khan during a programme on a television channel while Kaif, “rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement, joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct.”
