Shah Rukh Khan met Maharashtra Navanirman Sena Chief Raj Thackeray on Sunday and assured him that Pakistani actress Mahira Khan won’t come to India to promote his film Raees.
MNS Chitrapat Chief Ameya Khopkar told media, “Shah Rukh Khan met Thackeray at his residence a while ago and gave his assurance. He has also committed not to engage any Pakistani actors in any of his future film ventures.” After the Uri attack on September 18, which killed 19 of our soldiers, MNS had started protests to ban Pakistani actors in Indian film industry. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had been under heavy protests from MNS.
SRK meeting MNS has solved these protests and now it can be hoped that Raees will have a peaceful run in theaters. The film’s trailer has got great response from the film community. It is slated to release on 25th January, 2017.
