Mumbai, Jan 30(ANI): Shiv Sena chief Bala Sahab Thackeray has asked Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan to emulate the iconic actor Amitabh Bachchan, as Khan recently expressed his support to Pakistani cricketers' inclusion in the Indian Premier League's season 3.
Khan owns an IPL (Indian Premier League) franchise team, the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Sharing Bal Thackeray's views in appreciation of Bachchan, Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut said: "Amitabh Bachchan had declined to accept the award of Brisbane University because it was nation's sentiment in the wake of unending violence against Indian students in Australia. People should learn something."
Thackeray's opnion were expressed through an article in his party's mouthpiece "Saamna."
In 2009, Amitabh Bachhan refused to accept an honorary Doctorate being conferred by Queen's Land University of Technology Brisbane as a mark of protest against the attacks on members of the Indian community. (ANI)
