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 said.

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.
