New Delhi, Aug 7: Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan may be stripped of his Padma Shri award after an activist filed a complaint against him.

According to reports, RTI activist SC Agarwal filed a complaint with the Home Ministry demanding that the actor be stripped of the award which he received in 2010.

The Ministry later replied saying that they were 'examining' the matter.

Alongwith Khan two others were also charged under Section 325 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code. It is alleged that Khan punched a South African- based businessman and his father-in-law.
