Rajkot: Vishwa Hindu Parishad today said it
will not allow theatre owners here to screen Shah Rukh Khan
starer `My Name Is Khan` after the actor favoured inclusion of
Pakistani cricketers in the the Indian Premier League.

VHP city president Chaman Sindhav said VHP and Bajrang
Dal will jointly stage protests in front of the theatres which
will screen the film.

Terming the Bollywood actor favouring Pakistani players
as an "treacherous act", Sindhav said Shah Rukh Khan should
learn from Amitabh Bachchan who had refused Australia`s
invitation to receive honorary doctorate after Indians were
being assaulted there.

"We will hold several protests and then would intensify
steps if theatre owners continue to screen the film," Sindhav

Shah Rukh and Kajol starrer `My Name Is Khan` would be
released on February 12 in Rajkot.

Meanwhile, owner of a multiplex here, Ajay Bagdai,
refused to react on VHP`s stand.
