The party workers also destroyed the posters of Shah Rukh-starrer “My Name is Khan.”
“In real life, Aamir and Shah Rukh have been proved as ‘2 Idiots’ as both are making stupid statements supporting the cause of Pakistani cricketers,” said a statement in the party’s Hindi mouthpiece ‘Dopahar Ka Saamna’.
“While SRK is openly displaying his love for Pakistani players, Aamir has even put nationalistic sentiments in his utterances on this issue,” said the statement in the tabloid, which hit the stands this afternoon.
“According to Aamir, if any cricketer is good, he would like to have him in his team, it makes no difference to him which country he belongs to,” said the statement.
The statement is accompanied by a digitally altered picture of the recent record blockbuster “3 Idiots”. It shows the head of Aamir popping out of a drum and SRK sticking his tongue from another drum –– signifying the accompanying heading of “2 Idiots”. The two actors have not reacted to the Shiv Sena’s tirade. But Union Heavy Industries minister Vilasrao Deshmukh criticised the Sena for creating a “political stunt” by targeting Shah Rukh.
“They have run out of issues, so they are making a stunt,” Deshmukh said in Latur.
However, Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray dismissed the charge and said this was not an election time, so there was no need for a stunt.
Thane Sena leader Eknath Shinde has demanded an apology from Shah Rukh while announcing that no film of him would be screened in the district.
