WEB DESK: Famed Pakistani duo of Fawad khan and Mahira khan has been on a hit list for Shiv Sena activists, they claimed not to let either actor promote their films on Maharashtra soil.
Mahira is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Rahul Dholakia’s ‘Raees’, in which she stars alongside Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. “We have taken a stand not to allow any Pakistani actor, cricketer or performer to step on Maharashtra soil,” said Chitrapat Sena general secretary Akshay Bardapurkar, reports Emirates24/7.com.
Shiv Sena had protested in the form of an ink attack in retaliation to the book launch of the Pakistani former foreign policy minister.
As their extremism progressed they made the organizers cancel a concert by the legendary Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali in India earlier this month.
“We are not really bothered about who is signing these Pakistanis in their films. Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Shah Rukh Khan etc. are responsible citizens and they should not cast Pakistanis in their film,” Bardapurkar added.
‘Raees’, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, is slated for an Eid release in 2016.
