Shahrukh Khan, the prominent actor/co-chairman of motion picture production company Red Chillies Entertainment was recently named Ambassador of Interpol's 'Turn Back Crime' campaign just days after news reports surfaced that he reportedly had been threatened by underworld don Ravi Pujari and the timing has raised eyebrows of many Bollywood fans and social media entertainment observers.
The 'don' reportedly wanted Shahrukh Khan to participate in a concert that he organized for one of his friends for free. Yes, the rumour is the 'don' wanted one of the most successful and talented actors in the cinematic world, a man worth a reported $600 million to perform for a friend of his abroad for free. He also allegedly left a message/request with the secretary to be passed on to Shahrukh Khan that he does not want the actor to work with the Morani brothers. The Morani's own a company which takes care of Bollywood tours abroad and are the co-producers fo Shahrukh Khan's upcoming film "Happy New Year". These are people who close aides of Shahrukh Khan but the 'don' now wants to tell him who can work for him.
The information almost sounds like a movie script but some fans and entertainment observers question if someone could actually make up this type of foolishness.
Conicidentally, several days after the 'alleged' threats the superstar actor is pictured linking hands with Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble as an announcement is made that he has become the first Indian actor to become an Ambassador of Interpol's 'Turn Back Crime' campaign focused on promoting greater awareness on how to prevent crime.
Some people, such as fans and social media entertainment observers might look at this situation and think that Shahrukh Khan received an extortion threat from an underworld don and in response he decided to fight back against organized crime by becoming an Ambassador of Interpol's 'Turn Back Crime' campaign. If that is the case which some suspect it might be the scorecard reads: Shahrukh Khan 1, underworld don 0. Match winner in this contest is Shahrukh Khan.
