AGRA – Accusing actor Amir Khan of double standards, and advising him to go to Pakistan, Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists jointly intruded into cinema hall the to disrupt screening of the film PK.
They tore posters of the film inside and outside the cinema hall, shouted anti-Amir Khan slogans and asked managers to immediately stop screening of the film.
Cinema hall management filed a complaint against protestors at the New Agra police station. SP city Sameer Saurabh said action would be taken.
Madan Sharma of the Bajrang Dal and Rajendra Garg of the VHP criticised Amir Khan saying that he was displaying his anti Hindu sentiments by ridiculing Hindu gods and goddesses in the film.
Aamir Khan is known for being very selective about the films he acts in and all his films manage to receive great response from the audience. He makes sure his films create headlines, and this year’s Christmas release PK is no different. Although the film opened to impressive collections at the box-office, PK is also in news for other reasons. It seems Aamir has rubbed some sections of the society in a wrong way and PK is being embroiled in controversies more than one.
Certain sections of the society are blaming the makers of the film for being insensitive towards religion and portraying it in a wrong way. Social media is abuzz with mixed reactions from the audiences. The hashtag #BoycottPK was also trending on Twitter as people expressed displeasure over hurting their religious sentiments. According to a report on indiatoday.intoday.in, an FIR has been lodged against the film under sections 153A and 295A of the Indian Penal Code.
