Saturday, April 14, 2012 • Hindi Comments

While Shah Rukh Khan has made many a resolutions in the past to quit smoking, he's never been able to stick to them and this time his habit has landed him into legal trouble.

A complaint has been registered in Jaipur against Khan for smoking publicly at Sawai Man Singh Stadium, where he was present to witness the IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. The complaint has been filed by director of Jaipur Cricket Academy, Anand Singh Rathore in the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate.

"Smoking publicly is banned in Rajasthan since 2000. However, Shah Rukh Khan was smoking publicly in front of thousands of spectators. The actor was broadcast live while smoking on the TV channel which was showing the match," lawyer Nem Singh Rathore was quoted saying on behalf of Anand Singh Rathore.

The complainant also blamed the cops for showing negligence, stating, "The police was confiscating any objectionable items including cigarettes while frisking. However, it seems Shah Rukh was allowed to carry the cigarette packet into the stadium which is negligence on part of the police also."

The court will hear the matter on April 12,
