“They have shown that actor Ajay Devgn, who plays a role of police officer speaks of hitting the saint, while he is seen offering prayer at a mosque in uniform, and saluting a Muslim priest. This is going to create wrong impression about the Hindu religion,” he said.
Shinde said, “If the producer of the film goes ahead with the release without cutting the scenes (defaming a Hindu saint), we will hold demonstrations across the country.”
‘Singham Returns’ has also been shot in Goa, besides Hyderabad and Mumbai.
