Shah Rukh Khan has a humongous fan-following, not just in India, but also in Pakistan. Recently a shoemaker in Pakistan decided to make Peshawari chappals for the Badshah of Bollywood. But alas his overenthusiasm in making something special for SRK landed him behind the bars.
Sources revealed on Shah Rukh Khan’s special request his cousin in Peshawar had approached shoemaker Jehangir Khan and asked him to make two pairs of Peshawari chappals (in Kaptaan Chappal style) for him. She wanted to gift it to the Khan on her visit to India. Now Jahangir Khan, an ardent SRK fan decided to add his special touch made some special ones for his idol and boasted about it. Yes, the shoemaker’s boast of making sandals for the ‘Raees’ actor out of deer skin fell into the ears of the wildlife department officials who filed immediately took action against him.
Sources further added that, Jahangir Khan is at present released from the prison, whereas the wildlife officials have sent the chappals for examination to check whether they are truly made from deer skin. If the reports come positive he will face fine and prosecution as under wildlife laws.
We are quite sure that though Shah Rukh Khan requested his cousin for Peshawari sandals he would never ask for them to be made with Deer Skin. It is truly astounding to see the extent fans go to get their stars to notice them.
On the work front, the actor who has two ‘Raees’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’ lined up for release is at present busy with Imtiaz Ali’s ‘The Ring’ co-starring Anushka Sharma in Prague.
