Targeting Shah Rukh Khan over the Wankhede incident, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on Saturday said the actor did not seem to mind the treatment meted out to him by airport authorities in the United States, but was ready to get into a fracas in Mumbai because "he has the Congress's protection".

"Surprisingly, US security officers detain Shah Rukh Khan at the airport, frisk him, but he does not lose his cool. He goes there again and again to get humiliated. But he argues with humble security guards at Wankhede, because here he has the protection of the law, and of the Congress," Thackeray said in his editorial in the Sena mouthpiece Saamana.

'Shah Rukh is a good actor'

"Shah Rukh is a good actor but his behaviour at parties and public events is controversial. Recently Saif Ali Khan too behaved this way. Perhaps that's why the Centre gave him a Padmashri. In that case, Shah Rukh deserves a bigger honour. Please do recommend him for President-nominated Member of Parliament," it said.

"If Shah Rukh felt that the security guards misbehaved with him and insulted the children of a celebrity, he should have complained to the authorities at Wankhede Stadium. The guards would have been punished without any inquiry," Thackeray said.

The editorial also compared Shah Rukh with other members of the film industry.

"Amitabh Bachchan and his family members, Aamir Khan, Anil Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan are also celebrities. But one never hears of them getting into brawls under the influence of alcohol," it stated.

The editorial also mentioned recent reports that Bachchan helped some Vidarbha farmers repay their debts. "How many actors have done this," it asked.

"We wish Shah Rukh success as an actor. He should stay away from fights, brawls, bad language and Pakistan's advocacy," Thackeray said.

Sena had targeted Shah Rukh earlier over his remark that he would have liked to have Pakistani players in the IPL.
