Shah Rukh dials Assam CM after “who is Shah Rukh” remark

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today said he has spoken to megastar Shah Rukh Khan and assured him over the protests against his upcoming film ‘Pathaan’. Mr Sarma said Mr Khan dialled him early this morning over “an incident” that occurred at a theatre in the state.

Speaking to the media in Guwahati on Saturday, Himanta Biswa Sarma had made remarks on Shah Rukh Khan and his upcoming film Pathaan. “Who is Shahrukh Khan? I don’t know anything about him or his film Pathaan”, the Assam Chief Minister responded to queries raised by reporters on the violent protest by Bajrang Dal activists, who stormed a theatre at Narengi in the city on Friday where the film is slated to be screened.

On being told Mr Khan is a Bollywood superstar, he had said people in the state should be concerned about Assamese films, and not Bollywood.

The remarks were in response to questions over some activists tearing the movie’s posters at a Guwahati theatre that is set to screen the movie.
