The political battle between Congress-NCP government and Shiv Sena in Mumbai over release of Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol starrer “My Name Is Khan” (MNIK) continues unabated. With the prospect of potential violence and protests during Friday’s release of Karan Johar’s film, the Maharashtra government is pulling out all stops to ensure that the Shiv Sena is blocked.
The police on Wednesday rounded up over 1,600 Shiv Sainiks and arrested another 59 and charged them with violence and vandalism in Mumbai. Notices were also sent to 50 other middle-level Sena functionaries warning against joining protests.
Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray remained defiant and vowed to stop the film’s release and implement his father and party chief Bal Thackeray’s diktat against SRK, who batted for Pakistani players in the Indian Premier League.
