Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, co-owner of Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders, today said he did not meet former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi in London.
The 49-year-old actor was asked whether he met Modi, embroiled in a row after it came to light that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had facilitated travel documents for him in London and that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had reportedly favoured Modi’s immigration plea in a London court.
Modi has also been active on his Twitter page, alleging he had private meetings with Priyanka Vadra and husband Robert Vadra.
When asked during an interview to NDTV if he met the tainted former IPL boss during his stay in London, Khan said if he had met Modi, it would be out by now.
“No, I didn’t even have a vacation in London… I was shooting in Bulgaria… I finished in the evening, took the morning… (sic) After because it was the last night… we were awake till about 6 in the morning… chatting and talking… and just about we entered the plane at about 2 o clock landed in the evening and next day I had my daughter’s and son’s admission.
“So, I hardly had time there… No I did not meet Lalit Modi… If I had, he would have told everyone,” Shah Rukh said.
