Shahrukh Khan, Saif Ali
Khan, Ajay Devgn, Sunil Shetty and Manoj Bajpai have all been
served a court notice for promoting liquor in Madhya pradesh.
The actors have allegedly violated the MP State Excise Act by
promoting liquor in the state for which the Gwalior bench of MP
High Court has issued notices to these film stars.
The high court sent out notices after hearing a petition filed
by a lawyer Avdhesh Bhadoria. The lawyer alleged that the state
police showed reluctance registering the case against the
Superintendent of police, Gwalior, Inspector of Inderganj police
station, three distilleries were also issued notices, other than
the actors. Justice D K Paliwal has ordered the actors and the
distilleries to submit their explanations.
In an order dated January 22, 2011, the excise and prohibition
department said all direct liquor ads in print and electronic
media, hoardings, as well as surrogate ads where a brand of liquor
was promoted in the form of a soda etc had been banned.
Looks like it's that time of the year where every actor in
Bollywood is caught in some legal battle or other!!
