When a superstar like Shah Rukh Khan is commuting by train, you do expect a crowd. That’s exactly what happened when SRK took a train to Delhi. The superstar was all comfortable in his seat, but little did he expect that his journey would soon become a nightmare for some of his fans. A social activist named Farid Khan Pathan of Hatikhana area from Vadodara lost his life while trying to catch a glimpse of his idol amidst the frenzied crowd at the station.
SRK did express his sadness over the incident, but there are always going to be haters ready to spew venom at such opportune moments.
The BJP National Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya attacked SRK with his words and also compared him to the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. Speaking to reporters, Vijayvargiya said, “If Dawood Ibrahim comes on street, there would be a crowd to see him … You can’t gauge the popularity on the basis of crowd. I will not comment further… People have understood what it means.”
He also gave the situation a political touch by comparing ‘Raees’ with Kaabil’. He tweeted, “Now it’s the turn of the country’s ‘kaabil’ citizens. No ‘Raees’ can take away merit from the ‘kaabil’.”
See his tweet below:
Well, it clearly shows that he is rooting for ‘Kaabil’, and this incident has further added fuel to the fire.
As for King Khan, he is busy with the promotion of his movie ‘Raees’ which releases tomorrow. The movie is directed by Rahul Dholakia and also stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in it.
