Mumbaikars queue up to watch 'My Name Is Khan' My Name Is Khan
In a remarkable show of solidarity with superstar Shahrukh Khan, the people of Mumbai turned out in droves to watch his latest movie My Name Is Khan despite the fear of an aggressive protest, if not an act of vandalism, by the Shiv Sena.

Though no theatre screened the early morning show on Friday, a select number of multiplexes began showing the movie by noon. The film was originally slated to release on 63 theatres in Mumbai. But it eventually was shown at 13 cinema halls, where people queued up to buy tickets and gave emphatic sound bytes to the media in their open support for SRK.

Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, state Home Minister R R Patil, Minister of State for home Ramesh Bagwe, and other ministers, legislators and municipal corporaters also bought tickets and watched the film at a theatre on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena continues to claim that its campaign against Shahrukh Khan has been “successful”, even though the party supremo on Friday said that he wanted SRK to apologize to the nation and not to him.

SRK, however, is in Berlin for a special screening of the film. But he tweeted that he was overwhelmed and humbled with the love his fans and the people of India have shown him.
