A complaint was filed in a court of the Pink City Jaipur against Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan for publicly smoking at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium during an Indian Premier League (IPL) match Sunday between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, a lawyer said.
The complaint was submitted in the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate. The court has fixed April 12 for hearing in the matter.
The lawyer said that spectators were being allowed into the stadium only after frisking. "The police was confiscating any objectionable items including cigarettes while frisking. However, it seems Shah Rukh was allowed to carry the cigarette packet into the stadium which is negligence on part of the police also," the complainant said.
Shah Rukh is the co-owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders side.
