Learn from Amitabh Bachchan, Shiv Sena tells Shah Rukh Khan

Mumbai: After targeting Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan for his remarks supporting the inclusion of Pakistani cricketers in the IPL, the Shiv Sena Saturday dragged in Aamir Khan, calling the duo "2 Idiots".

 

"In real life, Aamir and Shah Rukh have been proved as '2 Idiots' as both are making stupid statements supporting the cause of Pakistani cricketers," said a statement in the party's Hindi mouthpiece Dopahar Ka Saamna.

 

"On the one hand, while SRK is openly displaying his love for Pakistani players, Aamir has even put nationalistic sentiments in his utterances on this issue," said the statement in the tabloid, which hit the stands this afternoon.

 

"According to Aamir, if any cricketer is good, he would like to have him in his team, it makes no difference to him which country he belongs to," said the statement.

 

The statement is accompanied by a digitally altered picture of the recent record blockbuster "3 Idiots". It shows the head of Aamir (the star and promoter of the movie) popping out of a drum and SRK sticking his tongue from another drum - signifying the accompanying heading of "2 Idiots".

 

Aamir had said Friday that if he were to select IPL players he would do so only on the basis of their performance and not nationality.

 

The Shiv Sena Friday hit out at Shah Rukh, who is also the Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner, after he said he would have picked a Pakistani player for IPL matches if his team had a slot.

 

Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said if the actor was so keen on them, "He could go play his matches in Lahore, not in India".

 

Thane Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde announced that no film of Shah Rukh would be screened in the district.

 

Both actors have not reacted to the Shiv Sena's tirade.
