Kailash Vijayvargiya lashes out at 'Raees,' supports 'Kaabil'

 Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya has indirectly hit out at Shah Rukh Khan-starrer "Raees" and supported Hrithik Roshan's "Kaabil".

Vijayvargiya tweeted, "The Raees who is not of his own country is useless and we should all support 'Kaabil' (competent) patriot.

In the tweet the politician has not taken name of Shah Rukh or "Raees" the movie.
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, "Raees" was at the centre of a controversy for casting  Pakistan actor Mahira Khan.

Mahira plays the 51-year-old actor's love interest in the film, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a police officer.

Post Karan Johars "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", the SRK-starrer will be the second big film to be released after Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) called for a ban on Pakistani artistes in wake of Uri attacks.

Both "Raees" and "Kaabil" are set to release on January 25. Shah Rukh had also met the MNS chief to avoid any pre-release trouble due to Mahira's presence in the movie.
