After ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali, Pakistani actors Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan have become the latest targets of Shiv Sena, with latter vowing not to allow the actors to promote their upcoming films in Maharashtra.

Mahira is all set to make her Bollywood debut with the Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Raees'.

On the other hand, Fawad, who made his Bollywood debut in 2014 with 'Khoobsurat,' has more Hindi films lined up, including Dharma Productions' 'Kapoor & Sons' and 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.

Earlier, the Sena had not allowed Ghulam Ali to perform in the state. After being banned from performing in Mumbai and Pune by the Shiv Sena, Ghulam Ali was invited to perform in Kolkata and Delhi.

The Shiv Sena had defended its move stating that banning the singer was their tribute to the Indian soldiers, who had died at the hands of Pakistan in the recent ceasefire violations.

The Sena had also protested at the BCCI headquarters leading to the withdrawal of Pakistan Umpire Aleem Dar from India-South Africa ODI series.
