'Pro-Pak' SRK comes under Sena fire
Mumbai, Jan 29: After slamming the business behemoth Mukesh Ambani for his 'Mumbai for all' remark, Shiv Sena has now launched an attack against Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan over his Indian Premier League (IPL) comments.

The star, who owns the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, has come under the Sena fire for his 'pro-Pakistan' stand in the recent controversy over a perceived snub to Pak players at the IPL auction.

Saying that the party can not tolerate 'anyone praising Pakistanis', it is now planning on obstructing the screening of his latest movie titled 'My Name Is Khan'. The movie is scheduled to release on Feb 12.

Over the past few days, the Bollywood icon registered his opposition against what happened at the Jan 19 IPL auction and opined that the issue could be resolved in a 'nicer' manner.

The activists have already initiated the protest against SRK by tearing the posters of the movie in Thane.

"Let us see how he dares to take in Pakistani players. We will see to it. We will not tolerate anybody praising Pakistanis. Balasaheb has already given instructions on the issue. You will see what Shiv Sena will do in the coming days," Sena leader Sanjay Raut is quoted as saying in a news report.

This is not the first time the Shiv Sena has raised a cry against movies. Earlier, Sainiks went around draping the posters of 'Kurbaan' with sarees to cover Kareena Kapoor's bare back.

This current issue, however, has snowballed into a complex controversy with sports, national and international politics and entertainment forces embroiled in it.
