Mumbai: At least 14 Shiv Sainiks including a corporator were on Friday arrested from outside cinemas screening Shah Rukh starrer 'My Name is Khan' after the activists indulged in stone pelting.

Eight Shiv Sainiks were arrested from outside Fun Republic cinema in suburban Andheri while six others were arrested from K-Star Mall.

"We have arrested Shiv Sainiks who tried to disrupt the screening of the movie at the Fun Republic by resorting to violence," Deputy Police Commissioner, K Prasanna said.
