Shiv Sena targets SRK, Big B praises Thakeray
There was a time when Amitabh Bachchan felt the heat of the Shiv Sena. But now the scenario is totally different. Uddhav Thakeray is quite impressed with Big B’s new release ‘Rann’ and praised the film as well his performance. If on one hand Shahrukh Khan is at the gun point of Shiv Sena then on the other hand Big B is at the good book of the party.
Bachchan writes, "Uddhav Thakeray calls. He has just come out of the theatre after 'Rann' and is not able to find appropriate words to describe his appreciation for the film and the performance. Minutes later Bala Saheb calls. 'I want to see this film. Come and show it to me!' 'You have not been to see me for a long time!' I assure him I shall arrange a projection in his house. I ask after his health. He is fine he says.
He cannot travel out due to his frail condition, but the fire in him still burns. He is resolute and firm as ever and in that resoluteness you discover an endearing, that sudden soft moment, which has always made his presence so strong and affectionate. His sense of humor is in tact as he punches in some wise ones!!"
On the other hand, SRK stands by his statement and refused to apologize for his words, in the consequence, Shiv Sena activists banned the screening of the film in Mumbai, ‘My Name Is Khan’ slated for Feb 12 release.
