Producer Ritesh Sidhwani today said the shooting of the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer “Raees” is progressing smoothly in Bhuj even as Vishwa Hindu Parishad members threatened to disrupt it.
The VHP yesterday protested against the shooting of the movie in the district. Sidhwani took to Twitter to clarify that the film has received cooperation from government and police force.
“No disruption on Raees set in Bhuj shooting on schedule with full cooperation from government & police force...,” he tweeted.
Around 20-30 VHP activists had handed over a memorandum to district officers and demanded withdrawal of the permission given for the shooting of the film.
They protested outside the district Collectors office pressing for the same demand. They shouted slogans against Shah Rukh and also burnt and tore his posters.
