Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’ will soon be releasing in theaters. But looks like the film is all set to hit a roadblock. Yes, Shiv Sena has issued threat letters to a leading distributor who covers Chattisgarh against the screening of the flick there.
‘Raees’ stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan. As a ban has been imposed on the actors from across the border, SRK had tried to pave the way for a tension free release of ‘Raees’. He had even met the MNS head Raj Thackeray to make sure MNS doesn’t enforce any ban on his film. But looks like but he didn’t consider that trouble was already waiting for him.
Sources said, “A leading distributor who covers Chattisgarh, the Shiv Sena has sent threat letters warning them of consequences if they are to go ahead with the release. The letter has been sent to Akshaye from the political party’s Chhattisgarh wing.”
Sources added that, Akshaye has been trying to bring the issue to the notice of the Sena youth president Uddhav Thackeray and has tweeted the letter on his timeline too.
Rahul Dholakia’s ‘Raees’ will be releasing on January 25. It also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani beauty Mahira Khan in pivotal roles.
Hope King Khan manages to solve the issues soon.
