The Shiv Sena has decided to target Shah Rukh Khan again.
The party has objected to the actor changing the name of his heritage Bandra bungalow, Villa Vienna, to Mannat.
Speaking in the legislative Assembly on Wednesday, Sena legislator Subhash Desai sought a probe into how the civic heritage committee allowed the name of a heritage structure to be changed.
Desai said the government should probe if the interiors of the heritage structure was changed without the permission of the heritage committee, which is an authority on heritage buildings.
“It’s fine that Shah Rukh purchased the heritage bungalow, but he changed its name, which is objectionable,” Desai said. Desai also wanted a probe into the civic heritage committee’s functioning.
The Sena has been campaigning against the actor ever since its tirade against his film My Name is Khan did not have much of an impact in Mumbai.
Khan has been on the Sena’s radar since his statement that Pakistani cricketers should have been included in the Indian Premier League.
The Sena had threatened to stall the film’s release, but the government handled the situation sternly.
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, meanwhile, demanded a permit system for entry into Mumbai. Party legislator, Nitin
Sardesai, said Mumbai’s infrastructure cannot take the burden of more migrants.
