Dalits angry over Saif Ali Khan’s role in 'Aarakshan'!
Saif Ali Khan plays a Dalit character in director Prakash Jha’s film Aarakshan which is about the reservation for the minority groups.

However, Saif’s character in the film has upset a fringe Dalit group that goes by the name of Dalit Suraksha Samiti. The group, we hear, has shot off a letter to Jha expressing their protest over Saif playing the dalit character.

Jha is a bit perplexed by the protest and has decided to wait and watch.

“Yes, we have received a letter. My people are looking into it. We have not filed any complaint yet. It does not seem to be a registered organisation,” Jha said in a statement.

The reason for Jha’s confusion is that he doesn’t understand why dalits should protest against Saif playing a dalit character.

“I can’t understand why anybody should be offended if Saif, being from a royal family, is cast as a Dalit,” Jha says.

Jha’s previous film Raajneeti was also in controversy before its release.
