Shiv Sena targets Pakistani actors Fawad, Mahira Khan

Mumbai, Oct 20 (IANS) Pakistani actors Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan have been targeted
by the Shiv Sena. They have vowed not to let the actors promote their upcoming films in Maharashtra.

Fawad, who made his Bollywood debut with the 2014 film “Khoobsurat”, has more Hindi films in his kitty including Dharma Productions’ “Kapoor & Sons” and “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”.

On the other hand, Mahira is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Rahul Dholakia’s “Raees”, in which she stars alongside Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

“We have taken a stand not to allow any Pakistani actor, cricketer or performer to step on Maharashtra soil,” said Chitrapat Sena general secretary Akshay Bardapurkar, reports emirates247.com.

Shiv Sena had prevented legendary Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali from performing here earlier this month.

“We are not really bothered about who is signing these Pakistanis in their film. Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Shah Rukh Khan etc. are responsible citizens and they should not cast Pakistanis in their film,” Bardapurkar added.

“Raees”, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, is slated for an Eid release in 2016.

Meanwhile, “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”, directed by Karan Johar, also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The film is expected to release on Diwali next year.
