Shahrukh Khan the co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders seems to have landed up in big trouble for smoking in public.
A complaint was filed in a court on Monday against the Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan for smoking in public during a cricket match of his own Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kolkata Knight Riders with Rajasthan Royals which was held at Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur,Rajasthan on Sunday.
In fact King Khan was even broadcasted live on TV smoking in the stadium during the match.
The director of Jaipur Cricket Academy Anand Singh Rathore moved to the court to seek a legal action against Shahrukh Khan. It is said that Anand Rathore even submitted a video evidence that clearly shows that the actor smoked in the stadium while the match was going on.
Lawyer Nem Singh 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. The actor was broadcast live while smoking on the TV channel which was showing the match."
Anand Rathore even wants an enquiry on as to why Shahrukh Khan was allowed to carry cigarettes inside the stadium because the security usually allows spectators into the stadium only after frisking. Items such as cigarettes, match-boxes, lighters and even water bottles are not allowed inside the stadium.
The complaint said, "The police was confiscating any objectionable items including cigarettes while 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."
Shahrukh Khan has landed in trouble previously also for smoking in public. The complaint was submitted in the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate. The court has fixed April 12 for hearing in the matter.
