After Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming film BAJIRAO MASTANI being threatened by Shiv Sena and the descendants of Peshwa and Chhatrasal dynasty, Shah Rukh Khan’s film DILWALE has received threats from a Right Wing organization to vandalize cinema halls in protest against Shah Rukh Khan’s stance on ‘Growing Intolerance in India!
According to latest reports a Right-Wing organization called Hind Rashtra Sangathan has put of posters across Indore in Madhya Pradesh poisoning the minds of the citizens against Shah Rukh Khan alleging him to be a Deshdrohi i.e. traitor.
The campaign aptly titled ‘Talkies Phodo Abhiyan’ (Vandalize Talkies Campaign) is aimed to damage cinema hall screening DILWALE featuring Shah Rukh, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon. It may be noted that DILWALE is as one of the most awaited and biggest flicks of this year.
Members of Hind Rashtra Sangathan claim they are annoyed at Shah Rukh Khan’s irresponsible remark about ‘Religious intolerance’ where he said due to growing intolerance in India the nation is being pushed backward. The organization is also peeved at Shah Rukh’s support to the protest of litterateurs, who are returning their National Awards and disobeying the country.
Briefing media about ‘Talkies Phodo Abhiyan’ (Vandalize Talkies Campaign) a member of the Hind Rashtra Sangathan said, “Our ‘Talkies Phodo Abhiyan’ is scheduled on 18th December, when Shah Rukh Khan’s film is releasing. We have appealed the public not to watch DILWALE though posters and huge hoarding.”
He added. ‘We have also asked theatre-owners not to screen DILWALE but if they do not oblige to our demands than we have warned them we will vandalize cinema halls and if there is any stampede or disturbance during the screening of the movie than they would be responsible!”
