The additional chief judicial magistrate (ACJM) court in Jaipur has summoned Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan for smoking in the stadium during an IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.





The Kolkata Knight Riders owner was caught smoking in public on April 8 in the Sawai Man Singh Stadium. Anand Singh Rathore, director of Jaipur Cricket Academy, had filed a complaint against him.



"Smoking publicly is banned in Rajasthan since 2000. However, Shah Rukh Khan was smoking publicly in front of thousands of spectators. The actor was broadcast live while smoking on the TV channel which was showing the match," said lawyer Nem Singh Rathore who filed the complaint on behalf of Rathore.



If found guilty, SRK can easily get away with a fine of Rs. 500.
