Shah Rukh Khan is the name that resonates stardom. When Karan Johar confirmed about SRK’s cameo in his latest, much-controversial ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, the curiosity of the fans was boosted. It wasn’t a surprise to see die-hard SRK fans flocking the theaters in huge numbers across the country. The theater audience applauding or whistling or tossing coins in the air during Khan’s entry scene are the common sights. But with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, something unexpected happened.
A group of SRK fans got so excited that they took their obsession to a hazardous level about his entry in the film. During a screening of the film in a theater in Malegaon's Upkar theater in Maharashtra, these fans went so crazy at his cameo, they burst firecrackers. While the gesture was extremely flattering, it had the potential to burn down the theater.
In a viral video doing the rounds, fans were seen bursting a string of crackers — including rassi bombs and rockets — inside an auditorium filled with 900 people.

The fireworks inside the cinema hall left the remaining audience highly frightened. South Indian actor Siddharth was the first celebrity to come out openly and criticize such an act. In a tweet, he wrote “Deeply disturbing. Shameful incident. What is the law doing about it? Scary!”
In Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, SRK played widely-known artist Tahir Ali Khan, Saba's (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) ex-husband. His three-minute-long cameo and conversation with lead actor Ranbir Kapoor were enough to leave his fans thrilled. But such shameful incident from the fans was something uncalled for.
