Shahrukh Khan is garnering mass support in his recent stand-off against Shiv Sena. From politicians to artists, film fraternity everybody seems to be standing behind King Khan. Shiv Sena has been targeting the Bollywood actor after he voiced his support for Pakistani cricketers in the third season of IPL. Sena has been violently tearing off posters of his movie My Name Is Khan and has threatened theatres across Mumbai from screening the movie.
From blogs to twitter and SMS campaign people are rallying behind Shahrukh's stand against the Sena. Preity Zinta who had bravely taken a stand against the underworld tweeted in support of Shahrukh and said "Shahrukh is the most secular and the most fair guy I know! It's unfair to judge his movie based on his opinions! I do love Karan Johar and Shahrukh! Both are very dear to me and I will defend them if someone writes nonsense about them"
Aamir Khan who is always in competition with Shahrukh had also voiced his opinion i support of Shahrukh and said that players should not be selected based on their nationality. Perhaps the most surprising of all came from Shahrukh's enemy No. 1 Salman Khan has said that doesn"t owe an apology to Shiv Sena. The BJP which had been a close ally of the Sena has also come out in open support of the star.
