Even though Shah Rukh Khan has personally spoken with Raj Thackeray seeking his support for the smooth release of Raees, an incident of fresh threats from Shiv Sena against the movie screening has recently been reported.
A leading distributor from Chhattisgarh on Tuesday took to Twitter to post a threatening letter as issued by the political party and captioned it as “Dear @AUThackeray, We have received this threat letter from your Chhattisgarh unit against playing @iamsrk’s #Raees. Do you endorse it?”
While the distributor has sought help from SRK and Aditya Thackeray, both are yet to respond on the same.
Helmed by Rahul Dholakia, the movie will hit the silver screen on January 25.
