Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer "PK" is performing well at the worldwide box office, but various religious outfits are protesting against the film, which is said to have hurt religious sentiments of the Hindus.
The film, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, has been in news for all the wrong reasons ever since the first look poster was released. Adding to the list, on Sunday, yoga guru Baba Ramdev also slammed the makers of the movie, and asked Hindu devotees to boycott the film, which has reportedly, disrespected gods, goddesses and Hindu saints.
Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists intruded into Shree Talkies in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday evening and disrupted the screening of the film. They even advised Aamir to go to Pakistan.
The activists tore posters of the film inside and outside the theatre, shouted anti-Aamir slogans and asked the theatre management to stop the film's screening.
The protesters had earlier filed an FIR against the film and demanded the removal of some of the controversial scenes. However, the Censor Board on Monday decided not to delete any of the scenes as it has already been released worldwide.
Many celebs have reacted on the issue and actor Boman Irani, who is also a part of the film, has asked people to respect the viewpoint of the makers.

All those gundas attacking cinema halls showing #pk must be arrested immediately and locked up with Asaram.
If these sadhus can unite against #pk why can't film industry unite and ask for a ban against such miscreants?
