Bengal's Brand Ambassador Shahrukh Khan gets Drunk and Beat Up Staff at Wankhade
Posted by FullMarx on 17 May 2012
One can only praise the choice of the honorable chief minister of West Bengal, Ms. Mamata Banerjee for making Shahrukh Khan as West Bengal's brand ambassador.
Bengal which produced stalwarts and luminescent like Rammohan Roy, Tagore, Jagdish Bose, Vivekananda, Ramakrishna, Bankin Chandra Chattopadhaya, Sarat Chatterjee, Jagdish Bose, Satyen Bose, Subhas Bose (during the renaissance and pre-independence period) and in recent times cultural icons like Ravi Shankar, Satyajit Ray, Uday Shankar etc, is now resorting to Shahrukh Khan to project its brand - nothing can be more pathetic than this.
Mr. Khan now is in his sunset years has left hardly anything behind that can be labelled as culture or heritage. Barely few months back this man got drunk in a ex-gangster's birthday bash and beat up the husband of a Bollywood colleague. Again, yesterday night after his franchise KKR winning against Mumbai Indians, Khan forcefully entered Wankhdae ground without authorization with about 30 kids and misbehaved, manhandled and abused the MCA security men and officials - he was drunk and the ACP Mumbai has gone publicly on record that Mr. Khan was smelling alcohol.
The film actor has become very arrogant in recent times and has shown scant disregard for laws and etiquette. He was seen smoking many a times during IPL matches, something which is not only banned but also distasteful and outrageous in the context of a sport.
But Mamata Banerjee feels that Khan is the perfect role model for people of Bengal and this man can best project Bengal to other states. Proabably, Khan shares the culture of TMC cadres and that's why the honorable chief minister finds him the best man for branding West Bengal.

Fullmarx@ I also agree with your views. How could a person like SRK be brand ambassador of Bengal, which is culturally very strong? Every movement of Sharukh khan depicts picture of an arrogant, restless person who can not be called by any standard a cultured man. Actually Mamata is now in a very agressive mood to appease the muslims. That has forced her to decliar Shahrukh as Bengal's ambassador. She every now an then speaks about Rabindranath, Nazrul , projects a very cultured image of herself, but in reality decides to appoint Sharukh as the state's brand ambassador! Kolkata minicipality is yet to receive heavy amount of outstanding taxes from the red chillies, a company run by SRK for previous year's matches. Which SRK did not pay,insted tried his level best to get exemption, which he might have already managed by this time. If this is the true charecter of a person, then his selection as brand ambassador of West Bengal is the biggest joke of this century.

Today CNN-IBN is showing how Mamata Banerjee stormed out of a live show when some girls (university students) asked her few uncomfortable questions. She like her brand ambassador think that they are above law and any behavior of them must be welcome by others.
