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 actors.
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!!
