Mumbai, November 11

A video of actor Shah Rukh Khan getting yelled at by a prominent Maharashtra politician is breaking the Internet.

The incident happened on November 2 when the actor took a short break to visit his farmhouse in the picturesque town of Alibaug across the Gateway of India in South Mumbai.

While the actor was still sitting pretty in his yacht, Member of Maharashtra's Legislative Council and local strongman Jayant Patil had to push through a crowd of fans waiting at the jetty in order to board his own craft.

Clearly bugged, the septuagenerian Patil got his own yacht to pull abreast of Khan's after which he gave the star an earful.

“Have you bought the whole of Alibaug? If you are such a big star why can't you behave responsibly? Without my permission you won't be allowed to come here,” Patil is seen shouting at Khan in the video.

After Patil's yacht sped away, the actor quietly got out of his own and is seen escorted away by policemen.

With the video going viral online, Patil told reporters that celebrities flocking to Alibaug were creating nuisance for local
residents. “Khan was enjoying the attention of his fans while the policemen were struggling to control the crowd. This is no way for a big film star to behave,” Patil said.

Patil, who represents the Peasants and Workers Party which controls Alibaug, accused celebrities from Mumbai of violating all rules by holding all-night parties and creating a mess in the coastal town.

Incidentally, Patil owns a ferry company which plies yachts and boats between the Gateway of India and Alibaug which caters to the celebrity crowd which flocks to area on weekends and holidays.
