Raees banned

We all know that Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Raees’ has been in news for having Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in the lead role. After the Uri attacks, Pakistani artistes have been banned in India, and that’s why the actress won’t be promoting the film. Few days ago, SRK had also met MNS chief Raj Thackeray to ensure that Mahira won’t come to India to promote the film.


However, it looks like the film is still facing issues in some parts of the country.

Well, film exhibitor, Akshaye Rathi took to Twitter to share a letter in which a political party has told them to ban the release ‘Raees’ in Chhattisgarh.


Check out his tweets here:

Well, we wonder what Shah Rukh Khan has to say about this protest.
