Shah Rukh Khan Accused of Spitting on Lata Mangeshkar Body

Shah Rukh Khan Accused of Spitting on Lata Mangeshkar Body. As the nightingale of India passed away, everyone paid their respects to Lata Mangeshkar including Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan. However, the actor was wrapped up in serious accusations which later proved to be fake.

Lata Mangeshkar’s body was cremated in Mumbai with full state honors on Sunday. Many public figures such as the Indian Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi and Bollywood bigwigs attended the funeral rites.

Earlier this year, his son was caught up in a legal mess and SRK was dragged through mud over social media. This time it was legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar’s funeral who died on Sunday at the age of 92. Like many other celebrities and dignitaries, SRK also attended the funeral. He offered a prayer and blew it over the deceased’s body. The extremists however, started accusing him of spitting on Lata Mangeshkar’s mortal remains.

Meanwhile, large crowds gathered to pay their respects. Social media platforms were filled with tributes as people from across the world voiced their love for the legendary singer.

Among the outpour of obituaries came a bizarre accusation. A video of Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan who was present at the funeral along with his manager surfaced on the web. In the video, Khan can be seen reading a dua and then blowing it into the air. However, Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Arun Yadav misinterpreted the gesture and accused SRK of spitting on Lata Mangeshkar’s body.

Sense however, prevailed as fans from both sides of the border came forward to defend SRK’s gesture as respectful and completely okay. Pakistani fans also came forward to support the star. Actress Resham also gave her two cents on the controversy. Soon enough, BJP leaders began receiving flak for deliberately spreading Islamophobia and targeting Muslims.
