After threatening to withdraw Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray’s security, Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Wednesday said the Sena-Shah Rukh Khan controversy should be resolved by “mutual understanding.”
Talking to reporters here, Mr. Chavan said “The row should be resolved by mutual understanding.”
He said though the law and order is primarily the State government’s responsibility, other political parties should also think over it.
On reports that the advance booking for My Name is Khan being closed apparently due to Sena threats, Mr. Chavan said police are taking care of security.
“Police are taking care of the security issue to ensure that no untoward incident takes place,” he said.
Mr. Khan is in the line of fire from Shiv Sena for favouring the inclusion of Pakistani players in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. His movie is scheduled for release on February 12.
