Aamir Khan & Shah Rukh Khan Addressed As '2 Idiots' By Shiv Sena
Shiv Sena targeted Shah Rukh Khan for his remarks which supports Pakistani cricketers should be included in the IPL. Shiv Sena dragged Amir Khan into this matter and addressed the duo as “2 Idiots”.
It is known from the sources that Shiv Sena gave a statement which says, "In real life, Aamir and Shah Rukh have been proved as '2 Idiots' as both are making stupid statements supporting the cause of Pakistani cricketers".
"On the one hand, while SRK is openly displaying his love for Pakistani players, Aamir has even put nationalistic sentiments in his utterances on this issue", "According to Aamir, if any cricketer is good, he would like to have him in his team, it makes no difference to him which country he belongs to," said the statement
The statement is even attached by a digitally modified picture of the recent megahit movie "3 Idiots". It shows the head of Aamir Khan (the lead actor of the movie) popping out of a drum and SRK extending out his tongue from another drum which denotes the heading of "2 Idiots".
Aamir had said Friday that if he were to select IPL players he would give preference to performance rather than nationalism.
The Shiv Sena Friday reacted viciously at Shah Rukh, who is also the Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner, after he said he would have picked a Pakistani player for IPL matches if his team had a slot.
Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said if the actor was so keen on them, "he could go play his matches in Lahore, not in India".
Thane Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde in his statement said that none of Shah Rukh’s films would be screened in the district. However, both the actors have not reacted to the Shiv Sena’s speech of denunciation.
