Is Shahrukh Khan above the law?

The National Organisation for Tobacco Eradication’s (NOTE) main complaint is Shahrukh Khan’s arrogant behaviour and utter disregard for the law

The Badshah of Bollywood seems to show no regard for the law, claims Shekhar Salkar, General Secretary, NOTE. “My main grievance is his arrogant demeanour with which he time and again decides to trample the law and smoke in places where he can be viewed and emulated by thousands of viewers when he can smoke privately,” said Salkar in an interview to an agency.

SRK’s repeated offenses make us wonder if it’s just him, or is the entire film fraternity the same. Salkar informs that some time back, Amitabh Bachchan was slammed with a case for smoking in the poster of his movie, Family. The actor later apologised graciously and promised to never repeat it. During the shoot of Golmaal 3, Ajay Devgn was seen smoking in public. When NOTE sent him a letter, the actor courteously accepted his mistake and has not repeated it during any of his visits to Goa.

So why is SRK not complying with the same law? The actor was recently seen smoking at the IPL match in Jaipur and has now been summoned by the Rajasthan court. And it’s not a first for the actor. But Shahrukh did not apologise for breaking the law and the fee from Rs 200-1000 is too nominal for the star. We think it’s high time the actor takes the law more seriously, and behaves like a responsible citizen.

    Court should stop his shoots for this insane act! Let him apologize and vow not to repeat it and then he should be allowed to do his work. What is the point of calling him a STAR which is goes bone head!!!

    He should just pay the stipulated fine like any other Indian citizen. He should not be singled out as a Star and be subjected to a dog and pony show. If the Rajastan Administration think the fine is too low then the law could be ammended to include a ban or a stiff fine for repeat offenders.

  • Raj Kumar Yadav

    Yes, he is very arrogant and always tries to be above the law!

    A Dear hunter like Salman who even killed innocent ppl driving At night when he was drunk, travelling freely, and ppl telling about SRK! lol. They need just publicity. Like Bal Thakrey, whenever he needs to come to focus he tells stupid about Shahrukh. I m not telling Srk is right but its too much.

    Much as I love SRK, I think he needs to act more responsibly as a public figure.Smoking is bad for you and he should get help to give up for the sake of his kids.If he can’t beat the addiction, at least don’t smoke in public.I agree that the fine is probably nothing for him but hesitate to suggest an alternative punishment. Perhaps Suhana could think of one?Daddy’s little girl may have more sway!!!
