Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan
has been booked by city police for allegedly insulting the
national flag, police said today.
Based on the complaint of Lok Janshakti Party national
secretary Ravi Brahme that Shah Rukh Khan allegedly insulted
the tricolour in a video upload on Youtube, the Chatushringi
police lodged an FIR against the actor on August 14.
"Shah Rukh Khan has been booked under sections of
Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971. The case
was registered on August 14 and has been transferred to Mumbai
police for further investigation. The case documents consist
some photos and videos too," a police officer said.
Incidentally, Brahme had recently lodged a complaint
against Mumbai-based model Gehna Vashisht for allegedly
insulting the national flag by wearing it as a bikini.
She was arrested on August 18 by Deccan Gymkhana
police in Pune and released on bail, the next day.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh's manager in Mumbai was
unavailable for comment.
