Shah Rukh Khan
To protest the comments made by Shah Rukh Khan favouring the inclusion of Pakistani players in the Indian Premier League (IPL) Shiv Sena activists gathered in front of his house in Bandra on Sunday.
They called actor Shah Rukh Khan, co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders IPL team a traitor and also demanded apology from him. The protest continued late in the afternoon outside his Mumbai resident ‘Mannat’ in Bandra. They even exacted a ban on his forthcoming movie 'My name is Khan' which is supposed to be released on Feb 15.
It has been reported that Shiv Sena has written to cinema hall owners asking them to ban the screening of 'My Name Is Khan'. Shiv Sena chief, Bal Thackeray, commented on Saturday that Shah Rukh Khan has proved himself most deserving for Pakistan's highest civilian award, the Nishaan-E-Pakistan, for supporting the inclusion of Pakistani cricketers in the IPL.
It has also been reported to sources that Thackeray said that the "Khan" inside Shah Rukh Khan must be crushed by the "Har Har Mahadev" war cry of the "Shivaji" inside the Hindus.
