Shah Rukh Khan has incurred the wrath of the Shiv Sena yet again. On Friday morning, the Sena issued a statement in the party’s mouthpiece paper,


, against the actor, accusing him of insulting the martyrs of 26/11 by spending the day in revelry at a function in London, hosted by a Pakistani TV channel.

Sena spokesperson Rahul Navrekar said, “Ads were issued by a Pakistani channel claiming that Shah Rukh would be hosting a show in London for them, while India mourns the victims of the terror attacks. Is money everything for him?” He adds that “It’s the Indian government’s responsibility to look into the matter.” “

Yahaan hum 26/11 ke shok mein dube hain or wahaan wo Pakistanion ke saath naach gaana kar raha hai. Aisa aadmi desh mein rehne ke layak nahi hai

,” said Sena leader Sanjay Raut.

However, the actor’s spokesperson denied any knowledge about such a function, saying, “Shah Rukh is shooting for

Don 2

in Berlin. They (Sena) should check their facts. They can confirm with the German embassy that he is indeed in Berlin.”
