Shiv Sena burns effigies of “Aamir, Shahrukh”

The Shiv Sena has gone a step further after criticising Bollywood superstars Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan for supporting the exclusion of Pakistani cricketers in IPL. The police said that Shiv Sena workers have exposed their wrath against the actors by burning their effigies and toring their films posters at Regal Square into Mumbai.

However, no arrest has been made in spite of the violent protest by the Shiv Sena. The party has also sent out a strong warning to the theatres into the city not to screen Shahrukh’s film My Name is Khan.

Shahrukh, who owns the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, made a statement that Pakistani cricketers should have been welcomed into the IPL. Aamir also backed Shahrukh by commenting that he would have included a good player irrespective of his nationality if he owns a team.
