Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan’s act of slapping and abusing director Shirish Kunder, Farah Khan’s husband, might be due to a “personal or professional crisis” – according to Farah Khan.
“Shah Rukh has always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out a problem and it means the person who is hitting has either a personal or professional crisis going on. It saddens me to see him doing the same,” said Farah Khan, reacting to the incident.
Speculations run unleashed yet again as to what kind of ‘personal crisis’ can King Khan be going through. Of late, SRK has been incessantly linked with ‘Don 2’ co-star Priyanka Chopra and reports of an alleged affair between the two have been doing the rounds of media and mouths of people.
Shah Rukh and Farah have been good friends for a long time. But their friendship had deteriorated when SRK had refused to act in Kunder’s film, ‘Joker’. And now the fight that took place between Farah’s husband and Shah Rukh might act as the last nail in the coffin for the friendship of the two. The ‘Agneepath’ success party turned a nasty shade when SRK beat up Shirish Kunder, and the latter left the venue with a covered face.
There were numerous rumours about Farah and Kunder willing to file an FIR against Shah Rukh Khan, but from what Kunder has said, he has no intentions of doing the same. In a tweet, the director has said, “Contrary to rumours, we have no intention of filing an FIR or a Police Complaint.”
Also, talking to a leading daily, the director has said that he is yet to receive any apology from Shah Rukh Khan. “I have not got any call from Shah Rukh as of now,” said Shirish.
The entire fiasco that happened at the ‘Agneepath’ success party is due to Kunder’s tweets on ‘Ra.One’ that had offended Shah Rukh a bit too much. After a heated exchange between the two, Shah Rukh resorted to blows and slaps, thereby giving rise to fresh rumours. Farah’s decision to not file an FIR and remarks about the actor going through some sort of ‘personal crisis’ is now the rallying point of new speculations.
For Farah, forget and forgive seems to be the way to act. For Shah Rukh, forgetting Kunder’s tweets about ‘Ra.One’ turned out to be a difficult task. And for now, no FIRs against King Khan. Perhaps it is the calm before the storm, or perhaps the storm has settled down. Wait and watch seems to be the way to act for the rest of us!
