SHAH RUKH KHAN: king of controversies
SRK faced the ire of Shiv Sena after he stated that he would like Pakistani cricketers to participate in the third season of Indian Premiere League. The political party even threatened to stall the release of his film My Name Is Khan. Shah Rukh Khan reacted on Twitter saying: "Sad my statements are seen as a stand against a group instead of a stand for myself and my individuality. Differences in ideology should be grounds for debates & discussion. A must for freedom of thought. To see it any other way is so unfortunate."
Things got ugly at Katrina Kaif's birthday bash in 2008 between SRK and Salman Khan. It is believed that SRK made inappropriate comments about Salman's ex-flame Aishwarya Rai Bachchan which annoyed him.
Shahrukh Khan has been spotted smoking in public several times. When he was caught smoking in Sawai Maan Singh Stadium in Jaipur, a complaint was filed against him. (Image: Shah Rukh Khan spotted smoking openly at Star Screen Awards 2011.)
The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) officials lodged a police complaint against Kolkata Knight Riders' co-owner Shah Rukh Khan for his alleged misbehaviour at the Wankhede Stadium. SRK was banned from the stadium for three months as a result.
