Condemning Bollywood actor Salman Khan for his role in film Jai Ho, volunteers of the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) shouted slogans and blackened posters of the film outside Roopam Talkies on Relief Road on Friday.
The film was released all over the country on Friday.
NSUI activists, led by its national secretary Shahnawaz Sheikh, on Friday, protested against Salman speaking in favour of Chief Minister Narendra Modi at a function here on January 14 as well as issuing a statement in Mumbai a few days ago, in which Salman said Modi did not need to apologise for the 2002 riots.

His statements downright outraged members of the minority community in several parts of the country, particularly at a time when the 2014 Lok Sabha elections are approaching.
Speaking to mediapersons here, Sheikh said that the “actor lived in the comfort of his home in Mumbai when Gujarat witnessed India’s worst communal riots in 2002, resulting in both Muslims and Hindus being killed and property worth hundreds of crores of rupees being destroyed”. The incident also “brought a bad name to the image of the country worldwide”. He went on to point out that Modi has been denied US visa on grounds of largescale human rights violations and that the stand of the US government on Modi’s visa issue still remains unchanged despite friendly relations between the two countries.
