The film was to be discharged on September 18 yet it kept running into an issue with the theater proprietors declining to screen it in view of challenges by Sikhs. Gurmeet Singh had welcomed Sikhs’ fire in 2007 when he showed up in a start service wearing garments generally connected with Guru Gobind Singh.
After the theater proprietors declined to screen the motion picture, the dera devotees had arranged dissents and blocked rail and street movement for two days, blaming the state government for forcing “informal boycott” on the motion picture.
The motion picture was discharged in Bathinda, Moga, Fazilka, Jalalabad, and Sangrur, where the dera has extensive adherents.
The dera boss’ first motion picture ‘MSG, The Messenger’ was banned in Punjab recently. Radical Sikh minister Baljit Singh Daduwal had additionally requested a prohibition on MSG-2 in Punjab.
“We are elated over the motion picture’s arrival in Punjab and the Akal Takht decision to exonerate the dera boss. Both these things will help facilitate the relations in the middle of dera and Sikh associations,” said Kewal Singh Brar, an office-carrier of the dera.
Gurwinder Singh of Sikh association Ek Noor Khalsa Fauz said, “We are tormented over both the choices of absolving dera head and permitting the arrival of the film. It is all politically inspired.
