Rishi Kapoor and Rekha at the Golden Temple

A timely apology saved the day for Shatrughan Sinha's son, Luv Sinha's debut film.


A controversy erupted when a section of the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee objected to certain shots of the film, Sadiyan, that were picturised inside the Golden Temple in Amritsar [Images].

In the scene, Rishi Kapoor [Images] and Rekha have been shown feeding prasad to each other, which was objected to by the clergy members and intelligentsia. According to certain guidelines, such an act was not permissable inside the temple.


"The director, Raj Kanwar, has apologised and said that such incidents will not take place again and the shot will not be shown in the film," said A S Makkar, president of the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak committee. "As far as we are concerned, the matter is closed."


Quite a films have been shot inside the Golden temple, including the big hit, Rang De Basanti [Images], starring Aamir Khan [Images].
