Shahrukh Khan has been time and again trapped into legal troubles for some or the other reason. Sometimes his smoking acts fell hard against him, sometimes the actor got into controversial public fights. The recent reports say that after MNS chief Raj Thackeray backed cartoonist Aseem Trivedi, who was arrested on charges of sedition, Shiv Sena patriarch Bal Thackeray on Wednesday came out in his support and opposed the sedition law.
Thackeray told the media persons that when Aseem Trivedi tried "to depict the rot in Parliament and the government charged him with sedition. Trivedi did insult the symbols but that does not justify branding him a traitor and imprisoning him." He further told the press, "The sedition law is one brought by Britishers. Britain has dismissed it from their Constitution but it is still there in our Constitution."
Thackeray then made verbal attacks at Shahrukh Khan. "Police merely filed cases against people like Shahrukh Khan for insulting the national flag but there is no record of him being charged with sedition and arrested for insulting national symbol," he said.
