Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan may be enemies in real life but it seems that they are bonded by controversy created by various sections of society.
Apparently it seem that all is not well with Salman Khan’s ambitious film ‘Veer’ in the pink city of Jaipur as a certain Rajput Sena Karni is opposing its screening. They have claimed that the film has some scenes that convey misconception about Rajasthan and its people and therefore it has hurt their sentiments. Protesters from Rajput Sena Karni have also stopped the screening of film midway in a theater in Jaipur and have damaged the theatre properties to show agitation.
While, Salman is harassed by Rajput Sena Karnis, the other Khan, Shahrukh is in no less trouble as his statement over including Pakistani players in IPL teams has brewed trouble with the moral police of Shiv Sena.
Shiv Sena’s news publication ‘Daily Saamana’ claims that Shahrukh has no grief over the lives lost in the 26/11 blasts, which were carried out by terrorist from across the border (Pakistan). Therefore Shiv Sainiks in retaliation to SRK’s statement set fire to the poster of his upcoming film ‘My Name is Khan’ and further threatened theatre owners with the dire consequence of setting the theater ablaze if they screen the film.
Salman’s movie was already in a pit and this controversy has put a lid on it, while SRK’s film is yet to release and it is only a matter of time to see if this controversy becomes a setback for the film or gives publicity.
