Shiv Sena targets SRK for backing Pak players
MUMBAI: Shah Rukh Khan''s remarks on the Indian Premier League snub to Pakistani cricketers has enraged Shiv Sena.
The party on Friday said that the actor''s upcoming film My name is Khan will not be allowed to be screened. Sena workers tore down his film''s posters in Thane.
Earlier, Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut on Thursday said that Shah Rukh''s response in the row had a lot to do with his religion.
"This is not Shah Rukh, but the Khan in him that''s saying all this. Let Shah Rukh go and stay in Lahore, Karachi or Islamabad. He is not needed in Mumbai. Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb has made it clear that Pakistani players wouldn''t be allowed to play in the IPL or set foot in Maharashtra," Raut said.
"If there is an issue with any other country I think it can be resolved in a friendly and nicer manner," Khan said after the IPL snub to Pakistani players.
