As part of the promotions of Raees, Shah Rukh Khan boarded the August Kranti Rajdhani Express from Mumbai to Delhi yesterday. What was envisaged as a happy journey, did not go as planned as a man unfortunately died during the commotion.
At around 10:30 PM last night, the train had halted at a Vadodara station for 10 minutes, and needless to say, SRK fans had gathered in large numbers to catch a glimpse of their favourite actor. The crowd went out of control and the police had to resort to mild lathi charge. The unfortunate incident happened soon after that when the train started moving and the crowd started running along. The man died due to breathlessness followed by a cardiac arrest.
The deceased has reportedly been identified as Farheed Khan Pathan, a local politician
