Shahrukh Khan is known as 'The King Of Romance' but one look at his life and career, we realize he has now become 'The King Of Controversies And Fights'. SRK has fought with half the fraternity from Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan to Shirish Kunder.
He has been time and again popping up in the news for some or the other fight in Bollywood, the cricket stadium or even the lamest controversies. For a change, SRK has off late been popping up for his supposed patch-ups with Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn, but what we must observe is that he was not the first one to take the step. The other actors were cordial enough to give him a hug and SRK obliged. Even when it came to the matters of the fight with his close friend Farah Khan's husband, it was Farah who waved the white flag and not SRK. Farah Khan along with her husband Shrish Kunder, brother Sajid Khan and close friend Sajid Nadiawala went to Shahrukh Khan's home, Mannat and spent a day sorting out the issues and today Farah Khan is already ready with a new movie, Happy New Year starring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.
Shahrukh Khan tends to attract controversies from all sides, in fact he has become one of the most controversial actors in B-Town owing to either his celebrity status, religion or behaviour. He came under a lot of scrutiny when news of him allegedly going for foetal sex determination of his reported surrogate child broke out. The government even issued an investigation in the matter. Though the BMC had received a birth report from an Andheri clinic stating that a boy was born to Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri through surrogacy, the civic body was clueless if and where, a sex determination test was conducted.
