Shahrukh Khan is one of the biggest superstars in the world. His fans are spread all over the world and do not exist in India only. Since the government of BJP has come into power, Muslims are suffering greatly in India. Even a superstar as big as Shahrukh Khan is not safe from it.
Earlier this year, his son was caught up in a legal mess and SRK was dragged through mud over social media. This time it was legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar’s funeral who died on Sunday at the age of 92. Like many other celebrities and dignitaries, SRK also attended the funeral. He offered a prayer and blew it over the deceased’s body. The extremists however, started accusing him of spitting on Lata Mangeshkar’s mortal remains. Here is the video:
