A private Indian news channel reported that Shiv Sena has threatened film distributor Akshaye Rathi not to screen `Raees` which stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan opposite the Indian star Shahrukh Khan.

Indian media is blaming Pakistan`s Mahira khan for the threats. Regardless of Shahrukh Khan`s efforts to make peace with India`s MNS chief Raj Thackerey, the chattisgarh wing has sent threatening letters to ban Raees from releasing.

Akshaye Rathi tweeted, `Dear Aditya Thackeray, we have received this threat letter from your Chhattisgarh unit against playing Shah Rukh Khan`s Raees. Do you endorse it?` The first line of the letter clarifies`Film Raees par rok lagane ki baabat nivedan` (Hold Raees` release). But we do not know how serious the threat is. Whether Raees will be banned only in Chattisgarh or it will be banned in Mumbai too. Akshaye Rathi has been seeking help from everyone associated with Raees and the fans also to help spread a word against this violent behavior of Shiv Sena in the form of political threats.

He further said ` I Request all fans to help me bring this to the notice of @AUThackeray. I`m sure he will take action against this nuisance. #Raees.`

There is no official statement yet from makers of Raees but will the things get worse seeing the release on 25th January, which is just 14 days away? It looks like the tension between India and Pakistan which were easing are surfacing again which is a very bad news for filmmakers and artistes who know no boundaries when it comes to art.
