"We have requested the jathedar to demand clarification from the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal as well as Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) as to why they decided to impose a ban on the film. A committee formed by the SGPC had reviewed our film and given its nod, but now they are not supporting us," Sidhu said.
He claimed that the jathedar has assured him that the issue will be discussed in a meeting of the five high priests.
The star cast also performed 'ardas' at Akal Takht. Representatives of certain radical groups also joined them at the occasion.
Notably, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has also expressed surprise as to how the film was released.
