New Delhi: After Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma Saturday said ''Who is Shah Rukh Khan? I don't know anything about him or the film Pathaan'', the actor rang the CM at 2 am on Sunday.


Sarma took to Twitter and said that he has assured Khan of a smooth screening of his film in the state.

Earlier on Saturday, the media persons had raised questions on the violent protest by Bajrang Dal activists, who stormed a theatre at Narengi in Guwahati on Friday where the film is slated to be screened, tore down its posters and burnt them.

Responding to the media queries, Sharma said, ''Khan has not called me, though many from Bollywood do so, regarding the problem. But if he does, I will look into the matter. Action will be taken if law and order has been violated and a case has been filed.”

Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan and his film 'Pathaan' are facing backlash for showing Deepika Padukone in a saffron bikini in the song 'Besharam Rang'. Many leaders, including from the Vishwa Hindu Parishad have demanded a ban on the film.
