Superstar Shahrukh Khan was scheduled to visit Patna in Bihar to promote his forthcoming film Don 2 today. But the publicity event titled 'The King Is Back' has been postponed over security issues. According to reports, the organiser of the event has blamed the local administration for delaying the publicity of the movie.
In an SMS sent to reporters, organiser Spice Bhasha has confirmed the news of postponing Don 2 promotion. "Police and local administration prevent Shahrukh Khan from landing in Patna. We were ready to take off from Mumbai when local administration said that they will take action against people, who bring Shahrukh Khan to Patna," the PTI quotes Bhasha's SMS.
Meanwhile, Patna senior superintendent of police Alok Kumar has rubbished the charges. Talking to PTI, Alok Kumar said that Shahrukh Khan might have deferred his visit because of visibility problem at the Jaya Prakash Narayan International Airport in Patna. He added, "We have made all security arrangements for the show."
However, Shahrukh Khan was to kick-star the promotion of the film Don 2 in Patna today. Then he was scheduled to move on to other non-metropolitan cities. But there was a stampede-like situation at the venue in Patna, where SRK was scheduled to interact with mediamen during his visit. Disappointed fans dispersed as the news of the cancellation spread.
