Summon sent to Shah Rukh Khan in the case of man’s death during ‘Raees’ promotion
Shah Rukh Khan literally went out of his way to promote his gangster-thriller film ‘Raees’ and the impact of the same could be seen on box office numbers. We remember how Shah Rukh had embarked on a train ride from Mumbai to Delhi to promote this film. But unfortunately, en route to Delhi, a man died at Vadodara railway station, while making an effort to meet the star.
Thousands of crazy fans of his rushed at the Vadodara railway platform just to get a glimpse of SRK. And in this hullabaloo, a man died of a heart attack. Post this, Mumbai-based advocate and activist Abha Singh had requested GRP to file a complaint against Shah Rukh and the production house of ‘Raees’.
A latest update on this states that Shah Rukh Khan and Excel Entertainment have now been sent summons to appear in court and record their statements. Deputy Superintendent of Police (Railways) Tarun Barot informed a news agency, “We have issued summons to Shah Rukh Khan and co-producer of the movie, Excel Entertainment, which had sought permission from the Railways for the film’s promotion on a train. We have given to them 7 days time to file their statements.”
