SRK meets Raj Thackrey- Mahira khan to not promote raees

The superstar was concerned by rumors floating on social media networks that his co-star in “Raees” Mahira Khan was likely to come to India next month for promoting the film and joining its premiere.

However, Shah Rukh put all rumours to rest and personally called on Thackeray to apprise him of the real situation, and informed him that Mahira Khan will not promote the film in India , Khopkar said.

In view of his clarifications, the MNS will not oppose the January 25 release or screening of Raees in cinema halls, he added.

After September 18 Uri attack that left 19 Indian soldiers dead and the September 28 surgical strikes by India on Pakistan terror camps, the MNS had strongly protested against hiring of Pakistani actors by Indian film-makers.

Thackeray had vowed to stop release of a few films in which Pakistani actors are playing roles, including Karan Johar’s recent Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan and SRK’s Raees which has cast Mahira Khan.
