Shah Rukh Khan-starrer "Dilwale" is back to theatres in Mangalore. Theatre owners in Mangalore have decided to start screening of the movie "Dilwale", after the police assured of full security, reports PTI.
After being released on 18 December, screening of Shah Rukh Khan's "Dilwale" was stopped in Mangalore theatres from 20 December due to protests by right-wing organisations. Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad had demanded a ban on the film, in protest against SRK'S comment on "intolerance" in India. Members of the organisation had also reportedly warned theatre owners of violence if they would screen "Dilwale".
Fearing attacks, theatres owners in Mangalore had stopped screening of the film. However, with assurance of total security from Deputy Commissioner of Police, theatre owners in the city have decided to resume screening of the much popular movie with the start of the new year. Earlier, it was reported that Shah Rukh Khan was upset as his statement on "intolerance" had apparently affected the box office collection of the movie, but he also said that he does not think he should apologise for whatever he had said.
The movie, "Dilwale", featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, has been doing brilliant business at the box office. Directed by Rohit Shetty, the film has reportedly become one of the highest grossers in international market.
