Shah Rukh Khan is one name that resonates stardom. Be it his films or endorsements, everything about SRK hits the bull’s eye. So when there were reports that King Khan is set to do an important cameo in Karan Johar’s latest directorial Ae Dil hai Mushkil, the curiosity of the fans was piqued. Though the film got caught in controversies, it did not deter the eagerness of Shah Rukh’s fans to watch him onscreen. After all, certain things are more precious when served in small doses! But looks like the love of his followers turned a little violent in Maharashtra’s Malegaon.
KJo’s Ae Dil hai Mushkil had a starry release amid numerous promotions and events. And considering it opened on the Diwali weekend, some fireworks were expected at the box office. However, things went a little awry in one of the single screen theatre in Malegaon, where fireworks took place quite literally. A group of SRK fans got so excited about his entry in the film that they burst some real crackers. But going by the looks of it, the fireworks inside the cinema hall left the remaining audience highly frightened as there was a stampede-like situation on the entire ground floor of the building.
Check out a video shared on Twitter to know exactly what happened.

While such an audience action saw severe criticism from all quarters, south Indian actor Siddharth was the first celebrity to come out openly and criticise such an act. In a tweet, he wrote “Deeply disturbing. Shameful incident. What is the law doing about it? Scary!”

Shah Rukh Khan plays a big-shot painter and ex-husband of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in ADHM. His barely five-minute-long scene and conversation with lead actor Ranbir Kapoor were enough to leave his fans thrilled. But while SRK’s magic worked well for the film onscreen, such indisciplined incident from the fans was something uncalled for.
