Now, tweeple along with several Bollywood celebrities have come in support of the superstar. Bollywood’s music composer Vishal Dadlani quote tweeted a tweet asking how many who have worked with Shah Rukh are supporting him during the tough times.
He tweeted, “If Composers count, I am. SRK and his family are being used as a smokescreen, a soft target to distract from the 3000kg Talibani-drug haul at the Adani port, and to distract from the murder of farmers by the son of a BJP member/MLA. Straight-up.”
