Shah Rukh Khan is a superstar most people would give anything to talk to, but Jayant Patil, MLC (Member of Legislative Council) from Alibaug, Maharashtra, is not a star-struck man. The proof is the video where he can be seen telling SRK to get a move on.

The recent video appears to be taken on the day of Shah Rukh’s birthday as he reaches Alibaug where he held a star-studded birthday party. The actor’s yacht was docked at the Alibaug Jetty and the MLC wanted to leave for Mumbai. However, he had to wait as his yacht was behind SRK’s and the star took some time to come out. Reports also claim that some of the star’s fans did not make way for Patil, triggering his anger.

In the video, the MLC is seen getting visibly angry and shouting at the actor saying, “You may be a superstar, but have you bought entire Alibaug? You cannnot enter Alibaug without my permission.”

Narrating the entire episode to the news channel, Patil said he was scheduled to go to Alibaug on November 3 but could not board his boat as Khan’s yacht was anchored at the Gateway of India jetty.

“A huge crowd (of fans) had gathered there to get a glimpse of the actor and Khan was also waiving at them. There were some police officials too for his security. For some time, Khan’s boat did not leave and I had to wait. Even the police were doing nothing and this irked me. I heckled him (Khan) because I was getting late and it seemed that he was not in a hurry (to leave),” he added.

“I am a fan of the actor but what happened there was not good. Superstars should get police protection but that does not mean others should suffer because of it,” Patil said.

Patil later reached his yacht by going through SRK’s yacht. The footage also showed Shah Rukh Khan coming out on the jetty to loud cheers from the fans.

Recently, SRK celebrated his 52nd birthday with friends, family and some of the biggest Bollywood stars at his Alibaug bungalow. From Deepika Padukone to Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar to Katrina Kaif, Bollywood’s who’s who were at SRK’s Alibaug bungalow to celebrate his special day.

He is currently working on Aanand L Rai's next where he plays a dwarf.
