It seems the controversy surrounding SRK will not come to an end so soon, since the actor is again wedged in a big trouble.
Just when it appeared that the Wankhede stadium controversy with MCA has mellowed down to some extent, another one abruptly hit the roof, and this time it is by the Rajasthan police.
Rajasthan police today ordered King Khan to appear in a Jaipur court on May 26, based on a complaint that he was smoking in public at the Sawai Man Singh stadium during an IPL match between his team KKR and Rajasthan Royals on April 8.
According to a Times of India report, the summon regarding the court hearing has been sent to his residence in Mumbai.
"A policeman has left for his bungalow, Mannat, to deliver the summons," Mohar Singh, a police officer, told the reporters.
Apparently, the director of a private cricket academy in Jaipur, Anand Singh Rathore, had submitted the summons against SRK to the chief judicial magistrate's court on April 9, a day after the IPL match in the city, TOI reported.
Rathore had allegedly complained against the co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders for smoking amid thousands of spectators during the match, despite knowing that it was strictly banned inside the stadium's periphery.
Nearly three weeks after the complaint, the court has finally asked Shah Rukh to be present in Jaipur for hearing on Saturday. However, Rathore says that the "Police delayed in serving of the summons."
"The actor will have to be personally present in court. So far, no lawyer representing Shah Rukh has contacted either me or my client," he told TOI.
Earlier last week, the King of Bollywood was issued a five-year ban from entering Mumbai's Wankhede stadium, following a brawl with the MCA's security officials when the KKR was playing the Mumbai Indians.
