Why is Saif Ali Khan being stripped of his Padma Shri award?

Saif Ali Khan, padma shri

The Humshakals actor was conferred the prestigious award in 2010 and he is now in serious danger of having it taken back. Read on to find out why…

Saif Ali Khan was awarded the 2010 Padma Shri award for his outstanding contribution as an artist to the Indian society by the then President of India Pratibha Patil. All was well till SC Agarwal, an activist, filed a complaint with the Union Home Ministry in March, saying that Saif should not be allowed to retain the award. We wonder what the reason could be…

Our khabroos inform us that as Saif has been charged by a Mumbai court for assaulting an Indian businessman from South Africa in 2012, he should be stripped of the Padma Shri Award. Also Saif faces criminal charges in Rajasthan for allegedly hunting the blackbuck deer, a protected species, while on a film shoot in 1998.

Grapevine has it that the Home Ministry is examining the case and will come up with a decision asap. Keep reading this space for more information on the same.
