The dynamic duo of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif sent the box office on fire with their action flick-Tiger Zinda Hai. The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial broke many records and went on to become one of the highest grossing Hindi films.

The makers of the film Yash Raj Films are basking in its box office success, but the two lead actors it seems have landed themselves into a soup. A petition was filed before Patiala Courton Thursday seeking to lodge a FIR against the Tiger Zinda Hai actors Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and others for allegedly passing a casteist remark during the film’s promotion.

Patiala House Court has listed the matter for consideration for February 27. It has also sought a reply from Station House Officer on the complaint filed by Harnam Singh.

Singh who is a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis in his petition alleged that Salman Khan made the casteist remark during a programme on a television channel and Katrina instead of protesting joined him in insulting the victim through her conduct.

The petition which was filed before Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma alleged that the accused persons (Salman, Katrina and others) had "committed atrocity" on the members of the caste and humiliated them by making the casteist comment.

Tiger Zinda Hai which hit the silver screens on December 22 was the last release of 2017. Trade Pundits were expecting a blockbuster performance from the high octane film and Tiger Zinda Hai proved them right.
