As per reports, the superstar has been booked for rioting, unlawful assembly, damaging public property and obstructing a railway official during his promotional tour for the film.
On 23rd January, SRK, the film’s director Rahul Dholakia and other crew members went on a train ride from Mumbai to Delhi to promote the crime-thriller. The train had stopped at several stations where the actor interacted with his fans. Vikram Singh, a vendor at Rajasthan’s Kota railway station lodged a complaint with Kota government railway police on Monday against the actor. He has alleged that when the August Kranti Express had stopped at Kota station, the Raees actor started waving to his fans from the door of his coach.
