Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has been booked by the Pune police for insulting the Indian National flag.
The complaint was lodged by the Lok Janshakti Party secretary Ravi Brahme, who alleged that the actor insulted the national flag in a video uploaded on video-sharing website Youtube. An FIR was lodged at the Chatushringi police station.
Talking to the media about the complaint, a police official said “Shahrukh Khan has been booked under sections of ‘Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971’. The case was registered on August 14 2012 and has been transferred to Mumbai police for further investigation. The case documents consist of photos and videos.”
Shahrukh is currently shooting for his Diwali release in Ladakh, and will only return to Mumbai on September 8th.
Update: Apparently, the complaint is for an incident that took place after India won the Cricket world cup in April last year! See the video below.
