Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan is in legal trouble for smoking the cigarette publicly at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium during an IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and SRK’s team Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday (April 8,2012).
Now, Jaipur Cricket Academy director Anand Singh Rathore has filed a complaint against Sharukh Khan and submitted to the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate in Jaipur, and the case will be heard on April 12.
"Smoking publicly is banned in Rajasthan since 2000. However, the actor was smoking publicly in front of thousands of spectators. Sharukh Khan was broadcast live while smoking on the TV channel which was showing the match," said lawyer Nem Singh Rathore who filed the complaint on behalf of Jaipur Cricket Academy director Anand Singh Rathore.
“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,” he said.
