I got very angry and I called up the editor and I said, ‘You wrote this’. He said ‘But listen can you just take it… it’s just a joke’. So I said, ‘I don’t find it funny’. So I went down to the office and I misbehaved a lot and…”, Shah Rukh remembered screaming a lot and threatening to hit people.
He was then arrested.
“I was shooting a film and the cops came. They sat down very sweetly and said, ‘we have a few questions to ask you’. I said, ‘do you want me to pack and we can chat in my car?’ Because I always assume anyone who meets me is a fan (laughs). They said, “no, we want you to come in our car!” said SRK.
Small prison cell
The took him to the police station and when he saw the small prison cell, he pleaded with the cops to let him go.
“It was a small little prison. With all, you know, human faeces and ugh… it was really bad,” he added.
After getting out on bail, he even called the editor and said: “Now I’m in jail, and I’m not scared. Now you be very scared.”
