Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma along with director Imtiaz Ali were on a promotional spree for their upcoming film ‘Jab harry met Sejal’. After visiting several places, they visited Varanasi for the very first time.
Shah Rukh visited many places with his leading lady and the director before heading to the Ashoka Institute of Technology and Management. They were greeted by the BJP MP and singer-actor Manoj Tiwari who hosted the event for them. SRK sure did enjoy the time in Varanasi, but seems like the officials weren’t all that happy.
It is now that Varanasi Police have slapped a recovery of Rs 5.59 lakh on Shah Rukh for using police security during the promotions in the city. Reports say that 224 personnel under a Superintendent of Police rank officer were deployed for Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, director of the film Imtiaz Ali and Manoj Tiwari during the promotional event. The SSP R.K Bhardwaj reported that organizers of Ashoka Institute of Technology and Management had deposited only Rs 51,132 while the salary of the cops deployed for the security of the stars was over Rs 6.11 lakhs.
Following their department’s words, the college organizers claim that they have already paid Rs 51,132. Ankit Maurya, the organizer said that they’d informed the police department to recover the pending amount from SRK and his team. He claimed the only few cops were deployed at the campus whereas the others had accompanied SRK and team from the Varanasi airport to other places they visited. Now, the Varanasi Police department has sent a recovery notice of Rs 5.59 lakh to Shah Rukh.
