Shiv Sena’s wing threatens film distributor apropos releasing Raees!


MUMBAI: Pressure on the makers of Raees is augmenting with the approaching of its date of release.

Sources privy to here have learnt that film distributor named Akshaye Rathi has been threatened of dire consequences by Shiv Sena’s Chhattisgarh wing in case the said venture is released. 

The pundits at the helm of affairs here have revealed that the film is going through a tough time here in India since it features Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in significant role.

According to details, the political party has cautioned the distributor regarding the after effects if they give a go-ahead nod to the movie. 

However, it has further been reported that Akshaye has approached the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister’s Office and Shiv Sena‘s Youth Wing President Aaditya Thackeray so as to contain this problem. 

He took to twitter: “Dear @AUThackeray, We have received this threat letter from your Chhattisgarh unit against playing @iamsrk’s #Raees. Do you endorse it?”

It is pertinent to mention here that following Sept 18, 2016 Uri attack (in which 19 Indian soldiers were shot dead), the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) gave a 48-hour ultimatum to all Pakistani artistes to leave India.

Meanwhile,  another Pakistani actress Saba Qamar is all set to commence her Bollywood career with the movie titled Hindi Medium alongside Irfaan Khan.
