Raees is continuously being trapped in controversies and here is one more!
Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Gujarat unit of Shiv Sena demanded a ban petitioned on Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees. They claimed the movie Glorifies ‘A Real- life Criminal’.
VHP leader Ranchhod Bharwad said:
India had so many great personalities on whom you can make a movie. But Khan chose Abdul Latif, who was a dreaded criminal, bootlegger and a mafia don. Khan claimed the movie is based on fictional character but everyone knows that Raees is based on Latif.
We believe that government should ban the movie and book Khan for sedition for making such a movie.
Government should ban this movie, as it indulges in hero-worshipping of mafia dons.
Sena leader Ashok Sharma further added:
Instead of highlighting police officers who tamed Latif, the makers have projected Dawood Ibrahim’s aide Latif as a hero of the masses.
Bharwad also contended Mahira Khan that she made anti-India statements going back to Pakistan. He has previously held Khan responsible for the incident at Vadodara railway station, two days back.
