With the two multiplexes Fun Cinemas and Inox enjoying a house full when they decided to screen the SRK-starred 'My Name Is Khan' on Friday, Feb 12, all Mumbai multiplexes have decided to follow the suit and screen the film.
People who came out to watch the movie in these theaters told the media persons that they were not doing it only to watch the movie, but their acts were symbolic of the people standing by democracy and freedom of expression when they decided to not bow down to the threats of the political party.
Besides the main stream media and state government, which vowed support to Shahrukh from the beginning, the Bollywood fraternity is also voicing its support.
While Pooja and Kabir Bedi showed up at a theatre to catch the first day first show, Hrithik Roshan tweeted his support for Khan.
State Home Minister, RR Patil also arrived at a multiplex to watch the movie.
Meanwhile in New Delhi, Shahrukh Khan fans gathered and shouted slogans in support of the Bollywood star. They even tore the posters of Shiv Sena leaders, Bal Thackeray and Uddhav Thackeray.
