Shahrukh in legal trouble for smoking in public
Bollywood Baadshah and owner of Kolkata Knight Riders Shahrukh Khan is in trouble again and this time for his unhealthy smoking habit. on Sunday during a match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur, Shahrukh Khan was shown kicking the butt on national TV.
This made him land in legal trouble with the Jaipur Cricket Academy director Anand Singh Rathore who moved to court on Monday afternoon seeking action against Shahrukh Khan. The owner of Kolkata Knight Riders finds himself on a sticky wicket now.
The complaint filed in a Jaipur court accuses the superstar of publicly smoking during an IPL match at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium. The complaint was filed by the Jaipur Cricket Academy director Anand Singh Rathore. “Smoking publicly is banned in Rajasthan since 2000. However, Shahrukh Khan was smoking publicly in front of thousands of spectators.
Rathore said, "It's a lapse on the part of police and administration as they allowed Khan to enter the stadium with cigarettes. Besides seeking the court's intervention, another question I have raised is how a cigarette was allowed inside the stadium. Logon ki to paani ki bottle tak rakh lete hain, but SRK ko cigratte le jaane di."
Rathore has also handed over the evidence to the court along with the application. "I have given them a CD apart from some photographs wherein the actor is clearly seen smoking." The additional chief judicial magistrate's court, taking note of the complaint, has fixed April 12 as the date for next hearing.
"The actor was broadcast live on the TV channel while smoking. It's also negligence on the police's part, as they did not confiscate the cigarette packet, allowing him to carry it into the stadium." director’s lawyer told media.
