While Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is busy promoting his upcoming film Dilwale, it seems, smooth release of his movie in Madhya Pradesh is unlikely.

A right-wing group called, Hind Rashtra Sangathan, has started a campaign in Indore asking people to boycott the movie. The protest named, Talkies Phodo Abhiya (Vandalise Theatres Campaign) has been launched in protest of Shah Rukh's recent comment on growing intolerance.

The members of the outfit have put up posters in public places warning audience to watch the film risking their own safety. According to media reports, members of the outfit will start the drive from December 10, where they will personally meet public and urge them to boycott the film. They said they will also appeal to theater owners to not to screen the film.

However, the members have claimed in case the film is released in Indore, they won't hesitate to vandalise theaters and viewers should hold themselves responsible for any instance of violence or stampeded during screening of the movie.

The right-wing groups are seeking an apology from Shah Rukh after he spoke out against recent intolerant incidents in the country.

Dilwale has Shah Rukh, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sharon in the lead roles. The film directed by Rohit Shetty will release on December 18.
