Vadodara, Dec 19 (UNI) Two days before the release of Aamir Khan's new film ''Taare Zameen Par'', activists of Vadodara-based Sardar Patel Group today pulled down its posters at a multiplex, demanding an unconditional apology from the actor for his ''anti-Narmada Dam'' stand.

The group had earlier opposed Amir Khan's films-- ''Fanaa'' amd ''Rang de Basanti'' and ransacked a couple of theaters in the city to stop their screeding across Vadodara.

Talking to UNI, Sardar Patel Group president Manish Sanghani said the owners of all theaters and multiplexes in the city had conceded to their request not to screen Amir's new film and had taken out the posters of Taare Zameen Par, which was supposed to be released this friday.

''We had to take direct action against the Deep multiplex as its owner had not pulled down the posters as yet,'' Sanghani said and warned of similar action against all those theaters planning to screen the film.

Sanghani said the screening of any Aamir Khan film would be allowed in Vadodara only after the actor tendered an unconditional apology to the people of Gujarat for supporting Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) leader Medha Parkar and her fight against the move to increase the Narmada Dam height.

Fatehgunj police, which rushed to the spot, said a mob of about 50 people went to the multiplex and pulled down all its posters. No one had been arrested so far.
