Shah Rukh Khan’s demi-God status in Bollywood may have warranted a lot of conveniences for the actor, but the most recent one is definitely a civil shocker.
The lane passing next to SRK’s palatial home ‘Mannat’ at Bandstand, Cement Road, has been cordoned by the police during the festive time of the Mount Mary Church Fair, citing the reason that all of this is to ensure better traffic flow so that the security of the superstar’s house is not compromised on. “Earlier, Cement Road was widely used by the pilgrims to reach the church. However, for the past few years, officials have been blocking the road during the fair. There are so many families who live off what they earn during the fair,” said Gordon Jacobs, president of the Association of Concerned Catholics (AOCC).
The Bandra Police have been written to by the committee in charge of the church fair. However, the police have not replied. Jacobs adds, “An elevation has also been made on the Cement Road attached to his bungalow, just to park vehicles like his 50 feet long vanity van. This too is causing great inconvenience to the public.”
Well, SRK- we’re hoping you’d consider the benefit of the hundreds of pilgrims that travel to Mount Mary every year.
