MUMBAI: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday said there would be no probe against Aamir Khan's film PK in the state.

Fadnavis said there was no question of not letting the film screen as it was cleared by the censor board.

The Chief Minister's clarification came amid reports that the state government had initiated an inquiry to find out whether the film carried any “objectionable scenes.”
