Saif Ali Khan may be stripped of Padma Shri award Saif Ali Khan
Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan could be stripped of the Padma Shri award conferred on him in 2010, if the union government decides to act on a petition filed by an activist.

In March this year, RTI activist S C Agarwal had filed a complaint asking the Union Home Ministry to strip Saif Ali Khan of the Padma honour after a police case was filed against the actor for assaulting an Indian-origin businessman from South Africa at Taj Hotel in Mumbai in 2012.

The fight occurred when Saif, Kareena Kapoor and some others were dining at the Hotel’s Wasabi Restaurant.

Saif was arrested on 22 Feb 2012, along with his friends Bilal Amrohi and Shakeel Ladak for assaulting the NRI businessman. They were later released on bail.

Since Saif Ali Khan hasn’t been acquitted yet and the assault charges still hold against him, RTI activist S C Agarwal has been seeking the revocation of the Padma honour on the actor. In reply to his latest RTI, he has been informed that his petition is being considered by the Centre.

Saif Ali Khan was honoured with Padma Shri award in 2010 by then President Pratibha Patil. He was honoured for his contribution to the field of arts. At the time he was conferred with the award, there were some mild protesting voices that questioned the logic of honouring Saif with that honour.
