Shah Rukh in smoking row

MUMBAI: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan refused to accept the charges levelled against him for defying an Anti-Smoking Act during the recent Twenty20 cricket match in Mumbai.

National Organisation for Tobacco Eradication, an anti-smoking group, had issued legal notice against Khan for allegedly lighting up in public in violation of India's anti-smoking law. "This is not how a superstar should behave... Adored by millions (he) shouldn't lend a helping hand to promote smoking," the group's general secretary Shekhar Salkar said.
