Shahrukh, who is all eager to promote his surprise release this year at the Cannes film festival, has been denied a passport to visit the country hosting the prestigious event. The movie is scheduled for an April release.
In this bizarre situation, the producers have been left perplexed as to what can be done, when the festival is barely a few weeks away. They have even taken this matter to the Ministry of External Affairs and the Regional Passport officer, to obtain a new passport for Shahrukh. Even the authorities, it seems, are breaking their heads to find a way to get the performer a passport, at the earliest. However, why Shahrukh is being denied a passport, remains a mystery.
Shahrukh was unavailable for comment. He is currently in Chennai enjoying the fruits of lush greenery, while the producers are caught in a nail-biting situation. An insider revealed, “Both, the producers and Shahrukh, are confident about the film, but the only thing that’s been puzzling them is the passport issue. Shahrukh is a superstar, and more so in the film. Him being denied a passport, is preposterous.”
