One of the popular shows of small screen Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, faced backlash for depicting a living character of tenth Sikh Guru Gobind Singh. After the incident, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) demanded a ban on the popular show for hurting the religious sentiments of the community. Now, the makers have given the clarification on the controversy and requested people not to misinterpret it.

The official Twitter handle of the show tweeted a picture of Gurcharan Singh, who is seen as Roshan Singh Sodhi on the show. The tweet reads, “In Episode 2287 of TMKOC, Sodhi was dressed up as Guru Gobind Singh Ji ka Khalsa. We request viewers to not misinterpret it in any other way.”

After the controversy, Gurcharan Singh Sodhi himself clarified that he essayed the role of Guru Gobind Singh Ji ka Khalsa and not Guru Gobind Singh ji adding that there was some mistake in the disclaimer. He went on to say that if people will hear dialogues then it will be cleared that he was playing Guru Gobind Singh Ji ka Khalsa.

Producer of the show Asit Kumarr Modi also tweeted, “Roshan singh Sodhi became Guru Gobind singh Ji Ka Khalsa not Guru Gobind singh.Please check his dialogues and the episodes.”

Previously, the SGPC chief Kirpal Singh Badungar stated that the act of featuring a living character of 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singh is unpardonable and no actor or any character can equate himself with him.
