According to indianexpress report, the Sikh Community also said “No actor or any character can equate himself with the tenth Sikh Guru Gobind Singh.
According to the TMKOC team, “Roshan Singh Sodi was shown as Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Ka Khalsa, which has been justified through the dialogues & his performance. We have always believed in equality of all the religions & have never intended to hurt the sentiments of anyone. Our show consists of people from varied religions and cultures who worship each God and celebrate each and every festival with equal respect & happiness. We are aware & respect that in Sikh religion nobody can show or portray themselves as Guru Gobind Singh Ji. We request our viewers not to misinterpret it any other context,” read Asit Kumarr Modi’s statement as reported by indianexpress.com.
