Tandon and Khan clarified that it was not their intention to insult anyone

Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon, director Farah Khan and comedian Bharti Singh have been booked by the police on charges under Section 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs). 

Chairman of Samson Brigade Christian Youths Vijay Goria, and resident of Kamboj Nagar in Ferozepur, registered the complaint. This is the third complaint against the trio within the course of a week.

Goria alleged that the three had hurt religious sentiments of the Christian community when they mocked the word “hallelujah” in the show Backbenchers.

Tandon and Khan clarified that it was not their intention to insult anyone. 

The actor shared the since deleted clip of the show on Twitter writing: “Please do watch this link. I haven’t said a word that can be interpreted as an insult to any religion. The three of us [Farah Khan, Bharti Singh and I] never intended to offend anyone, but in case we did, my most sincere apologies to those who were hurt.” 

Farah Khan tweeted on Friday: “I respect all religions, and it would never be my intention to disrespect any. On behalf of the entire team, Raveena Tandon, Bharti Singh and myself... we do sincerely apologise.”

The three celebs visited Cardinal Oswald Gracias with a written apology letter on Monday.
