Valmiki community protest against 'Tiger Zinda Hai' in Rajasthan

Rajasthan saw massive protests against another Bollywood film, with members of the Valmiki community disrupting the morning shows of "Tiger Zinda Hai", a Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer, in many cinema halls across the state on Friday in protest against the alleged use of a pejorative word by Salman during a promotional event. The protesters also filed a complaint at the Nahargarh police station.
The protesters alleged that Salman had insulted the Valmiki community by using "cheap language". Earlier, the protests started from Ajmer and soon reached Jaipur and Kota, leading to cancellation of the morning shows in several cinema halls of the film that released nationwide on Friday. The movie has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and comes as a sequel to Kabir Khan's blockbuster "Ek Tha Tiger". Earlier, protests had broken out against Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmavati" for allegedly distorting history.
