Saif Ali Khan might lose out on Padma Shri award

The Government Of India is examining a demand for taking back the Padma Shri award conferred on Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan in the wake of a Mumbai court framing charges against him.

RTI activist S C Agrawal had filed a complaint with the Union Home Ministry on March 14 this year, demanding that the actor be stripped of the award. A Mumbai court had framed charges against him for allegedly involving himself in a scuffle in a restaurant.

In response to a subsequent RTI application filed to know the status of his complaint, the Home Ministry has replied to Agrawal that “the matter is under examination”.

43-year-old Khan was conferred with the Padma Shri in 2010 for his contribution in the field of art.

However, recently-framed charges against Khan and two of his friends — Shakeel Ladak and Bilal Amrohi under section 325 (assault) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

It is alleged that Khan had punched on the nose of a South-Africa based businessman and his father-in-law at a Colaba hotel in February 2012.

Khan and his two friends have pleaded not guilty after the metropolitan court in Mumbai read out the charges to them in March this year.

  • Interesting thing is that Salman not awarded by any civilian award probably due to the running cases against him but one of the case also running for Saif is the same Chinkara case but he still awarded with Padam shri. Salman is definitely much deserving than Saif if cases not matters.

  • Waiting for raja natwarlal . Chartbusters like tere hoke rahenge, dukki tikki , kabhi ruhaani are not broadcasted on tv due to weak music company jungli times.

  • Hrithik deserves padmashree award.

    Thanks to hrithik, bollywood got the only successful movie of history drama of the century.
    Thanks to hrithik, bollywood got a superstar who has acting skill,dancing talent,singing ability, greek god great looks, perfect body,humble and honest personality.

  • @SAKHI yes u r right that Srk deserved national award for Swades bcoz he had done great work towards society by showing village childrens stars by

  • saif is my 3rd favourite hero and he dominates always lead actors like kal ho naa ho and dil chahta hai, omkara he performed better than best actor(real) Ajay devgan. m nt talking about star power or stylishness. but he is amazing specialy in rom com like hum tum, cocktail, Love aaj kal. and omkara, wow.

  • @sakhi no just becuz hum tum
    is far better romantic movie than ur so called disaster king uncle’$ romantic movies. what do u think just becuz of doing a social drama srk is eligible for win national award no chance for king uncle.

  • Emraan hashmi also has done great movies like ouatim , awarapan , jannat , shanghai, etc And now his first hollywood biggie white lies. Directed by oscar winning danis tanovic.

  • @sudhir mishra yupp,, songs are very good. Probably the best album of the year till hny releases. Raja natwarlal looks a classy movie due to k k menon and massy due to paresh rawal.

  • This Nipun Kid is a younger version of KRK. Too irritating….
    Hrithik deserves Ghanta Award for Crap Acting in Jadoo 3 and perfect BO manipulations.
    SRK gave Bollywood a face in many countries overseas.
    Prabhu Deva is the India’s Dancing Icon. Yakin Na hota toh overseas mein kisi se jaa kar pooch le.
    Style icon, excuse me! What style has he but for shivering
    Body Icon??? Bol Gaya? Usko Bhojpuri Icon Ne Train Kiya Tha? Frankly, it is Bhojpuri that is fitness icon. He is useless except for that.
    Guzaarish aka Euthanisia is a mosquito movie as some Bhojpurians rightly say about him. He wants to die in the movie because of Flies and Mosquitos.
    Jodhaa only period drama? What about Mughale Azam and Lagaan? No wonder your knowledege is so limited.
    Thanks to Jaadooo, we have an actor that can’t do family drama, comedy, always shiver and doesn’t know how to deliver dialogues. Thanks to Jaadoo, he has received greek title
    Thanks to Jaadoo, we have a smart guy good at BO manipulations.

  • @sakhi Srk didnt win because Swades was a great movie but his performance was nothing extraordinary. National awards are better than Fakefare awards.

  • so now srk must also be stripped for the padma shri award he created violence in wankhede stadium and abused security official.

  • @ sky – u cannot compare killing chinkara to killing 3 people sleeping roadside. i know the hit & run case is not proved yet but we all know if it was a false case then it would not have been dragged for this long period on a powerful person as salman. in my opinion salman deserves atleast 14 years of prison.and i would have said the same thing even if srk(my favorite) would have done that crime.

  • @RAKHI, Hrithik did far better acting in Koi Mil Gaya and he definitely deserved the national award but saif got it due to his mother being in the jury. swades was released in 2004 and he didn’t deserve any national award for it. may be ashutosh gowariker deserved for his incredible work in lagaan,jodhaa akbar and swades.

  • Some foolish star lover bashing this world class actor just becuz their stars cant get awards. Salman, Amir and ajay r better stars who dnt need awards. even Ajay won national award. Ajay devgan is the only actor who can match the acting of theater actors such impressive unlike hollywood dogs. national award winner he is.

  • @sachin11,no bhai showed has crappiest acting and mindless fights from 90’s for which reason he should get padmashri right?but who cares he already won most prestigious award every year ha ha ha ha that is ghanta and kela award,lol.

    @nipun,hr is not a classic actor as none of his single starrer classic movie has got even hit verdict

  • I could name many personalities related to Indian cinema, who have given much more to Indian cinema and deserve to get this honor before Saif.
    This wasn’t the first time him getting involved in a pat like that. I think he needs to cut down his Nawabi attitude a bit.

  • @nipun bornvitaholic aka a khans’ slave: hey idiot, Due you even understand English? I said period/history drama of the century. Mughle-azam doesn’t belong to the century.
    @indicine: tell me who’s that nipun bournvitaholic. I am requesting you. Who’s that?

  • Great! My one comment makes all haterz frustrated that they are even creating ids wid my name.
    One nipun vs loki,navin,sss,yuvraj aka raj singh,tiger the real king.

  • @sss:
    Single starrer? Oh wait, jodha akbar was a hit due to supporting cast.isn’t it? Same goes for znmd,agneepath,kmg etc also? Isn’t it?
    Wahh! Yes, by that logic, also i can say that khnh was hit due to priety,saif, devdas due to aish,madhs,jacky n many more. Bt i won’t say that as i am not blind like u.

  • @nipun i told u its my friends id u can search all articals about it. this is my friends id and m nt ut rival. actually i like hritik he is no. 10 in my list. knph, kmg, krrish r best of hr. kites, d2 good. i dnt like znmd type of cinema in india but good movie. k3, j a, bad movies i havent seen fully cuz soo boring. aap mujhe and so many pre krrish movies r disaster worst cinema specialy aap mujhe ach hhe lagne lage is most bakwas movie of indian cinema. agnipath so so cuz it was remake of amitabh starrer and hr isnt so expressive like amitabh but his try is far better than srk’s don. sanjay dutt is more impressive but movie works becuz good performence of all actors u cant ignore sanju baba, i cant hr.
