Actor Gurcharan Singh Sodhi also clarified the matter by releasing a statemnt in which he said, “To begin with, no one in the Sikh community can ever enact Sikh Guru Gobind Singh, he is the ultimate guru of all of us. In the show, I depicted the role of Sikh Guru Gobind Singh Khalsa and my dialogues mention the same. The communication error happened when at the beginning of the show, at the credit title, mistakenly it showed Gurucharan Singh as Sikh Guru Gobind Singh and due to space issue the Khalsa word shifted down. Had this not happened all would have been fine.”
He further added- “I am hopeful that all will be well as we did not do anything wrong. I, being a Sikh, know that we are a peace-loving community and can sort out issues via dialogue.”
