Gujarat BJP youth wing on Thursday said it would not allow any film of Aamir Khan to be screened in the state till he tenders apology for supporting Medha Patkar and Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA).
BJP youth wing president Shankar Chaudhary said, "We have not allowed screening of Rang De Basanti in Gujarat theatres after he (Aamir) visited agitation site of NBA in New Delhi. Now, we will not allow his forthcoming film Fanaa to be screened anywhere in the state."
Aamir Khan starrer Fanaa is going to be released on May 26.
Chaudhary said, "We will request the Gujarat Multiplex Association and Cinema Association not to screen any film of Aamir Khan in their theatres."
An official of a Multiplex located in the city said they have not yet decided on screening Khan's movie.
BJP had agitated against the actor when he expressed solidarity with the NBA.
