Shah Rukh Khan Stands Up To the Shiv Sena

The Shiv Sena and Shah Rukh Khan controversy continues, with SRK not offering any apology and the Shiv Sena banning the screening of My Name Is Khan in Mumbai. The controversy follows Shiv Sena's interpretation of SRK's sympathetic statemements about the IPL (Indian Premiere League) and participation of Pakistan teams.

According to reports, there has been little concerted reaction from the Indian Bollywood Movie Industry in support of SRK. "Shah Rukh Khan is fighting his own battle, Salman Khan’s ‘Veer’ has been pulled out of cinema halls in Udaipur but nobody is condemning it, ‘Fanaa’ was thrown out of Gujarat," - Mahesh Bhatt is quoted saying in The Times Of India.
