A day after actor Shah Rukh Khan refused to cow down to Shiv Sena's threat, the party on Wednesday fired a fresh salvo at the actor.
Sena spokesman Sanjay Raut reminded the actor that he has his house in Mumbai and he cannot favour Pakistan while being in Mumbai.
According to media reports, Raut said SRK spoke of not apologising during his stay in the US and warned the actor against coming to Mumbai and speaking the same thing.
The Sena also involved the Congress in the issue, alleging that the actor is voicing Congress' opinion.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Shiv Sena threatened it would not allow screening of Shah Rukh Khan’s movies till he apologised for his remarks regretting the absence of Pakistani cricketers in the forthcoming Indian Premier League tournament in March.
Shah Rukh remained unfazed and termed the activities of the party as "undemocratic".
"It makes me feel that activities like this are unhealthy, undemocratic, its insensitive but this is how the world is and you can only say what you believe in and stand by it and hopefully I will have the strength to do so," Khan told reporters when asked about the Shiv Sena protests on Tuesday.
"As an Indian I'm not ashamed, guilty or unhappy about what I said neither am I sorry," he said.
