It was a virtual farewell for outgoing Chief Justice of India (CJI) SA Bobde today, and an interesting anecdote regarding Shah Rukh Khan emerged during it. Apparently, CJI had expressed a wish to see SRK involved in the Ayodhya temple-mosque conflict.
He wanted King Khan to become a mediator for the same. It was also learned that Shah was even on board for the same thing, but things didn’t work out in the end. This was revealed by Vikas Singh, president of the Supreme Court Bar Association.
Vikas told the story while paying tribute to Judge Bobde. Vikas said: “Judge Bobde asked me if Shah Rukh Khan was willing to play a mediating role in the Ayodhya conflict.”
He continued, “I spoke with SRK and he was happy to participate in the mediation, but unfortunately the mediation did not work.” There were then three people appointed by the Supreme Court to sit on the mediation panel. The members were Judge IMF Kalifulla, spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravishankar and senior lawyer Sriram Panch.
Vikas also spoke of Judge Bobde’s love for bikes and said, “I wanted to sell my Harley Davidson motorcycle. CJI said why are you selling it? Send it to me. I told him it was heavy but CJI replied that he had been riding a bicycle since he was a child. Because of the bicycle, the chief judge broke.
This is indeed exciting information for Shah Rukh Khan fans. What do you think about this? Thoughts? The comments section below!
