One of the most awaited film Raees is geared up to release on January 25, 2017. The film has been a part of many controversies till date due to the inclusion of Mahira Khan. The controversy was smartly averted after SRK assured Raj Thackery that Mahira would not be a part of any film promotions but seems like the film is in trouble all over again!
According to recent reports from Indian Express, film exhibitors in central Indian state Chhattisgarh are now receiving threats from Shiv Sena. In a threat letter delivered to all exhibitors in Chhattisgarh, Rakesh Shinde, Chattisgarh Shiv Sena head, has asked exhibitors in Durg and Bhilai to not screen Raees in their theatres, failing which they will be solely responsible for the consequences.
It looks like Shah Rukh Khan just can’t seem to catch a break.
SRK had struck a deal with Maharashtra Navnirman Sena that he would not involve his Pakistani co-star Mahira Khan in their film’s promotions in exchange for the peaceful release of Raees.
