Mumbai: Asking Shah Rukh Khan to quit smoking is like requesting Rakhi Sawant to keep her mouth shut!
The Bollywood superstar, who has been repeatedly making resolutions to bid adieu to the fag, has yet again succumbed to his weakness. And this time around, it has landed him in legal trouble.
A complaint was filed against the actor in the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate in Jaipur for smoking inside the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, during an IPL match. The court will hear the case n April 12.
Talking to DNA, lawyer Nem Singh Rathore, who filed the complaint on behalf of Jaipur Cricket Academy director Anand Singh Rathore said, “Smoking publicly is banned in Rajasthan since 2000. However, Shah Rukh Khan was smoking publicly in front of thousands of spectators. Images of the actor smoking were broadcasted live on the TV channel, which was showing the match.”
“The police was confiscating any objectionable items, including cigarettes, during frisking. However, it seems Shah Rukh was allowed to carry the cigarette packet into the stadium, which is negligence on part of the police also.” the complainant added.
Will SRK give up smoking at least to avoid such situations in future?
Only time will tell.
