Who would have thought that a Halloween costume as common as Catwoman would get somebody in trouble?

But such is the hard luck that recently befell our beloved actress Mahira Khan.

At Nabila's Halloween party, the svelte leading lady went as Catwoman, and posed for a picture with Asim Raza, the director of her upcoming film Ho Mann Jahaan.

Now, Asim was geared up in Shiv Sena's signature saffron and even sported a placard that said 'Mahira ko bahir nikalo!'

While Asim's costume was just a timely, tongue-in-cheek jibe at Shiv Sena, whose recent threats against Mahira and Fawad Khan have caused much furore, many people across the border construed Mahira's joint picture with Asim as a political statement.

The actress thus decided to clear the air with a series of tweets:

Mahira Khan's debut Bollywood film Raees, in which she stars opposite Shah Rukh Khan, will be out in 2016.
