Pokemon Go, a location-based augmented reality mobile game, may not be officially available in India yet, but that isn’t stopping Indians from downloading the pirated version to try it out. Even Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been bit by the Pokemon Go bug, which is quite a rage currently. After all, with three young kids – Aryan, Suhana and AbRam – at home, it would surely have been difficult for the actor to escape the buzz.
On July 14, a video was uploaded on YouTube which showcased an emotional Shah Rukh when he finds a Pokemon after a day-long search. On Thursday afternoon, SRK shared the video on his Facebook account saying, “This is quite close to how I would feel, and then, of course, capture it.”
Players can capture, battle and train virtual creatures called Pokemons with Pokemon Go, which has been developed by American software company, Niantic. Within a week of the launch, the mobile game became more popular than even Twitter. The game is officially available in 30 countries, including Australia, New Zealand, and the US.
