The Shiv Sena has sent a fresh threat to Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan to either apologise for backing the Pakistani cricketers at the IPL and his statement 'Mumbai belongs to all Indians' or face the consequences of banning his films in Mumbai.
Shiv Sena leader and former Lok Sabha Speaker Manohar Joshi warned that all Shahrukh's films would be banned in Mumbai unless he apologise for his remarks. He said that the actor has to take back his comments if he wants his films to be screened in Mumbai. He added that they couldn't let his film release in the city if he fails to offer apology.
However, Shahrukh is unlikely to bow down to the dictates of the Shiv Sena. He had earlier said that he had no regrets over his comments on Pakistani cricketers in IPL or Mumbai belonging to all Indians remarks. He added that he is proud to be an Indian and wouldn't apologise.
Shahrukh, who owns IPL team Kolkata Knight Rider, had earlier said that it's wrong to snub the Pakistani cricketers at the IPL and that the matter could have been handled better. He had also criticised the Shiv Sena for their anti-North Indian propaganda in Maharashtra.
Well, it has to be seen how Shahrukh would react to the new dictate of the Shiv Sena, as his much-awaited film My Name is Khan is all set for release next week.
