Shah Rukh Khan turns hostile in Bharat Shah case
Film actor Shah Rukh Khan on Tuesday turned hostile in a special court in the case of alleged nexus of Bollywood with the underworld.
Deposing before designated judge AP Bhangale, the actor did not support the prosecution case, following which the public prosecutor, Rohini Salian declared him hostile.
According to prosecution, the actor was allegedly threatened by producer Nasim Rizvi alias Raja Saheb and his assistant Abdul Rahim Allahbaksh to act in their film and was also persuaded by them to speak to Pakistan-based gangster Chhota Shakeel. But the actor had refused to oblige.
The actor sporting a black T-shirt and black trousers denied the police allegation that Rizvi and Abdul Rahim had approached him to act in their film.
Rizvi and Rahim are accused in this case and are facing the charge of developing alleged nexus with Chhota Shakeel to target film personalities for personal gains.
Shah Rukh is the eleventh witness to turn hostile. Others include, director Anees Bazmee, producer Sanjay Gupta, director Mahesh Manjrekar, owner of Venus music company Ratan Jain, financier Harish Sughand, businessmen Aftab Patel and Mohammed Ali Morani and Kumar Mangat Pathak, secretary of film actor Ajay Devgan and director Ali Morani.
