When it comes to SRK and his movies, intolerant VHP ko…
After disrupting shoot in Bhuj, saffron brigade members pelt stones at Shah Rukh Khan’s car parked outside Ashram Road hotel on Sunday, actor unhurt; cops arrest seven VHP and Bajrang Dal members
After trying to derail the box-office prospects of King Khan’s much touted Dilwale, the saffron bri gade continued their attack against the Bollywood superstar, in the city for the shooting of Raees, for his comments on intolerance. Though Shah Rukh Khan has since issued an apology, 17 youths on motorcycles pelted stones on his car parked outside a hotel on Ashram Road in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The actor was unhurt.
VHP workers also burnt him in effigy and shouted slogans outside the hotel. Till reports last came in, seven VHP and Bajrang Dal members were arrested for the attack.
Raees is one of the most awaited movies this year and SRK will be seen playing the role of a don in the film which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan. However, the saffron brigade has been up in arms against the actor since he spoke about rising intolerance in the country in an interview more than three months ago. After getting his film Dilwale banned in many cities across the nation, VHP and Bajrang Dal members protested against the star and hampered the shooting of Raees in Bhuj earlier this month.
