The biopic on India’s one of the most Googled celebrity, Sunny Leone’s web series Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story has landed into a controversy as many in the Sikh community has to discontent the title of the series.

Sunny Leone will next be seen in Vadivudaiyan’s Veeramadevi this year

The former adult movie star's biopic came under the scanner after Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) raised objection against the use of the title ‘Kaur’ in her biopic, as the institution states that a person who did not follow the teachings of Sikh Gurus shouldn’t use the word 'Kaur'.

Moreover, Manjinder Sirsa, a member of the Akali Dal, also asked for the removal of the term saying, “We have no objection with her profession, it’s her personal life. Our only objection is simply that we want them to remove the surname ‘Kaur’ because when she herself had earlier dropped ‘Kaur’ from her name then why it is being used now? We have urged the Chairman of Essel Group, Subash Chandra, to immediately remove it or face the consequences.”

While SGPC’S additional secretary and spokesperson Diljit Singh Bedi said on Friday, “Kaur is a very respectable and exalted name given by Sikh Gurus to Sikh women. A person who didn’t follow the teachings of Sikh Gurus shouldn’t use the word Kaur as this could hurt Sikh religious feelings. Sikhs will not allow her to use it. She should tender a public apology,” the demand flooded social media with many questions and protest against it. The angry mob took micro-blogging sites and expressed their views as the source stated, “YO YO Honey Singh can promote rape in his songs and still keep ‘Singh’title but Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee says Sunny Leone biopic can’t refer to ‘Kaur’title because, you know, porn, chi chi!.”

“Nobody objected when Sukhvinder Kaur changed her name to Radhe Maa and Gurmeet Singh become Baba Ram Rahim, for the reasons best known to them. Then why this whole fuss over Sunny Leone using her original name, Karenjit Kaur? What’s in the name? Also, Sunny has done no crime,” they added

At the same time as Sunny Leone’s husband Daniel Weber stayed silent on this topic, even the actress took to Instagram and boldly shared a still glance from her biopic with a caption saying, “A story that is so real, you will want to know more!”
