Is Sharukh Khan 'villain' of Mumbai blasts 2011? Sena's take

Shahrukh Khan
Mumbai, Jul 19: Indian government has not yet named any militant outfit as the culprit of Mumbai blasts on Jul 13, 2011. But the political party in Maharashtra - Shiv Sena called Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan as the "villain" over the mishap.

The King Khan has been bashed by the political party as he had thrown a lavish party for his Bollywood co-stars within some days of the serial blasts in Mumbai.

Samna, the mouthpiece of Shiv Sena referred Shahrukh Khan as 'villain' while stating, "Even a popular star like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan declined to receive an honour bestowed upon her by the French government. But Shah Rukh Khan did not have the heart to cancel the party."

However, Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt supported the superstar as he claimed, "I can understand the outrage if Shah Rukh indulged in a celebration on the very day of the blasts. But when the entire city moved on the very next day, why would you expect people from the film industry to put their lives on pause?"

Criticising Shiv Sena's move against Shah Rukh, Bhatt also said, "Political parties only need a reason to use tragedies for publicity, and that is exactly what the Shiv Sena is doing."
