Sena activists attack SRK's production house

February 12, 2010 20:21 IST

The office of actor Shah Rukh Khan's production house in suburban Bandra was attacked on Friday by Shiv Sainiks as part of their protest against the release of his latest film My Name is Khan.

"A group of Shiv Sainiks gathered outside the office of Red Chillies Entertainment (the production house owned by Khan), protesting against the actor and the movie," a senior police official said.

One of the protesters threw a bottle in the direction of the building, he said. "Nobody was injured and no property damaged. The situation was soon brought under control," the official said.

The Bal Thackeray-led party is demanding an apology from Khan for favouring the inclusion of Pakistani cricket players in IPL-3.

Meanwhile, SRK's wife Gauri defied the Shiv Sena threat and stepped out to see the Bollywood superstar's film 'My Name Is Khan' at a local theatre on the opening day of its release.

Gauri, 39, who broke her silence in the tense Shah Rukh-Shiv Sena stand-off, said her husband was 'very happy' with the initial response to the movie.

A co-producer of the film herself, Gauri urged cinegoers to catch up with the movie, saying it is a 'beautiful' film.

"He (Shah Rukh) was very very sad yesterday but today he is very happy that everybody in Mumbai and all over India has come to watch his film. We are very happy," Gauri said.

"It is a beautiful film and everybody should watch it. At times like this, peace is the most important thing," she added.
