Hindutva outfits Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad Saturday tried to protest in Madhya Pradesh’s Jabalpur after getting to know that Shah Rukh Khan-starrer film ‘Dunki’ was being shot there.
However, the filming had got over on Friday itself, though none of the main cast, including Khan, were present for this three-day schedule, PTI news agency reported.
The protest comes after Hindutva group’s’ hate campaign against Khan’s upcoming film ‘Pathaan’, which these groups have claimed hurt Hindu feelings, especially through a recently-released song.
Slogans-shouting Hindutva men tried to cross barricades put up by the police at the shooting venue but failed to do so, news agency said.
“We showed restraint. The shooting schedule was held with the permission of the Jabalpur collector. The shooting got completed on Friday itself. The protesters handed over a memorandum to the tehsildar seeking halt to the shooting,” City Superintendent of Police Priyanka Shukla told PTI over phone.
