Shahrukh Khan in WikiLeaks: Like every other politician whose name has been mottled in WikiLeaks, the latest we hear is that superstar Shahrukh and his controversial movie ‘My Name Is Khan’ has also found a mention in the US embassy cable leaked by WikiLeaks.
According to the reports, ‘My Name is Khan’ was grappled in controversy, when the Shiv Sena had warned against the screening of the film, since SRK had voiced his opinion against the Pakistan players absence in the IPL season.
The cable dated Feb 22, 2010 read, “The Shiv Sena had threatened to ban screenings of Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming movie, My Name is Khan, because Shah Rukh Khan publicly lamented the absence of Pakistani cricket players in India's professional cricket league for the coming season.”
