Shah Rukh Khan starrer Bollywood movie Raees is in trouble again. This time the threat is from Shiv Sena. Shiv Sena leaders has sent a threatening letter to the distributors of the movie Raees. The letter states that if the distributors go ahead with the movie’s release then they might have to face dire consequences.
Some times back there were rumours that Raees will face issues in getting release because of it’s lead female actor Mahira Khan. Mahira Khan is not only an upcoming Bollywood debutant but the actor is also a well known name in Pakistani movies. And that’s why there was a hell lot of speculations surrounding this movie’s release. We all have seen the fate of the movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Karan Johar directed movie in which Fawad Khan had a major role was also facing huge issues in getting released in India. But finally the movie was released peacefully all over the country when Karan Johar agreed to pay 5 crore to the army fund.
And this time the same story was repeated in case of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees. Some months back Shah Rukh Khan met MNS chief Raj Thackeray in which he ensured that major parts of the movie in which Mahira Khan was seen has been chopped off from the movie. He also assured Raj Thackeray that he will not work with Pakistani actors in future. MNS General Secretary and Party spokesperson said Shalini Thackeray, “Shah Rukh Khan came to meet Raj Thackeray without any mediation from our side. There has been no threat issued from our side despite rumours.”
So, now it will be interesting to watch if we will be able to see Shah Rukh starrer Raees on silver screen or will there be some serious trouble.
