Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most well-liked people on the planet. While his acting abilities play a part, no one, including West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, can resist his charm and wit. They have a close relationship. Mamata refers to SRK as ‘Didi,’ while the CM refers to him as her ‘brother.’ The Chief Minister of West Bengal recently alleged that the Bollywood superstar, like many others in the profession, had been victimised. We can only assume she was alluding to his son Aryan Khan’s involvement in the Mumbai cruise ship narcotics case and his subsequent imprisonment for about a month, during which time SRK’s name was spoken thousands of times, not always in a positive manner.
This happened when the CM was on a three-day visit to Mumbai. On a public platform, she was quoted as saying by a news agency, ‘I know Mahesh Bhatt is victimised, Shah Rukh is victimised. There are many more… Some can open their mouths and some can’t.’ ‘India values manpower, not muscle power,’ Banerjee stated in response to a question from Mahesh Bhatt about how liberals might be protected from the right-wing. Our root is oneness in variety. Unfortunately, we are dealing with the BJP’s nasty, undemocratic, and unethical behaviour. On October 28, Aryan Khan was granted bail in the case. In its ruling, the Bombay High Court stated that there was no prima facie evidence against the defendants that they had colluded to commit a crime.
Recently, actor-comedian Vir Das, who is currently mired in a controversy for his “Two Indias” monologue, was also heard praising SRK during a podcast. A SRK fan released a video in which Das praises the actor, calling him the “biggest star in the world.”
