Mumbai, Feb 5 (ANI): Under attack from the Shiv Sena for his remarks on the Indian Premier League controversy, Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has found support in film fraternity.
Supporting Khan's right of speech, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt said any kind of opposition should be within limits of decency.
"The Constitution of this country has given everybody a right to speak his mind and those who have opposed him also have the right to do so. I support Sena's right but the opposition should be within the limits of decency," said Bhatt.
"I hope politics and art don't clash and I hope these problems are resolved. I think something like this will take the attention away from the film. Art should be above all this," said actor Vivek Oberoi.
Terming these as tough times, actress Bipasha Basu expressed hope that this too shall pass and Shahrukh will emerge from all this unscathed.
"According to me, there is nothing wrong that he's done and we are all behind him and Shahrukh has got love and support of zillions of people so I think this tough time will pass," said Bipasha.
Shahrukh Khan, one of the owners of the Kolkata Knight Riders cricket team had said Pakistani players ought to have been considered in the preliminary auction of the players by the franchising teams.
This invited the latest Shiv Sena's wrath, and its activists attacked cinema halls screening Khan's latest movie 'My Name is Khan'. (ANI)
