Shah Rukh Khan has been on target of BJP extremists’ trolls after being accused of ‘spitting’ on Lata Mangeshkar’s mortal remains at her funeral.

The superstar, often dubbed as King Khan of Bollywood, attended the last rites of the legendary singer Lata Mangesher on February 6.

He was spotted making Dua – Islamic prayer invocation and blowing air to the mortal remains, however, the trolls targeted the Bollywood star accusing him of spitting on Lata Mangeshkar’s mortal remains at her funeral.

Video clips and photos of Shah Rukh Khan making dua at Lata Mangeshkar’s funeral have now gone viral on social media platforms.

BJP leaders claim SRK spat on Lata’s funeral

It all started after Arun Yadav, state-in-charge of BJP Haryana IT, posted a video on Twitter asking whether the actor had spitted.

 

Meanwhile, BJP Uttar Pradesh Spokesperson Prashant Umrao joined the bandwagon by repeating the claim, saying “Shahrukh is Spitting!”

Former CBI director M Nageswara Rao tagged the actor in a tweet asking if he’d spit and said being a public figure he is “required to give public clarification immediately.”

Lata Mangeshkar the ‘Nightingale of India’ breathed her last on Sunday morning (February 6) and was cremated on the same day with full state honors. 

On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan offering ‘Dua’ at Lata Mangeshkar’s funeral has also made Twitter pretty emotional.
