KRK

New Delhi:  Bollywood actor and producer Kamaal Rashid Khan, or KRK as he is often referred to, is known for shooting from the hip on social media. Kamal R Khan does not hesitate to voice his opinion on Prime Minister Narendra Modi or commenting on any big leader.

Not only this, KRK is full of opinions on politics and fellow film artists. KRK has tweeted about Congress president Rahul Gandhi, trying to shut up the critics of the Congress president.

In this election season of 2019, everybody who is an anybody is active on social media furthering one’s ideology. Why would KRK be left behind?

KRK tweeted, “How can anyone say that educated, good English speaking, handsome, honest @RahulGandhi who wants young people to become engineers, doctors and businessmen are not eligible to become PM. But he is eligible who wants the young generation to become Chaiwala, Rickshawala and Pakaudewala!”

KRK had not yet finished. Taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with people who question the eligibility of Rahul Gandhi and say that he cannot become prime minister ever, Khan wrote, “I was watching Rahul’s interview for 30 minutes on #NDTV and I didn’t find him wrong even once. Rahul Gandhi said I am nobody to become The PM of India. It’s up to the people, whom they want to see as PM. I respect the verdict of the ppl of this country. Superb! Brilliant!”

Bollywood actor and producer KRK has worked in the 2008 film Deshdrohi. Not only that, he appeared in Season 3 of the reality show Big Boss, and was in the limelight also due to his attitude.

KRK also runs a YouTube channel, and his movie review is quite popular too. He was recently trolled heavily for his review of the film Kalank.

Controversy’s favourite child KRK

Khan’s Deshdrohi was banned in Maharashtra by the State government that feared it could trigger riots.

KRK has been accused of making derogatory remarks about Dalits and defamatory comments against south Indian actor Dhanush in his review of a movie featuring the latter, Raanjhanaa. RL Kane, secretary of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Vichaar Manch lodged a complaint against KRK under Section 66A of the IT Act at the Seemapuri Police Station of North-East Delhi via an email to the Police Commissioner BS Bassi. The film fraternity approached the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), demanding a complete ban on Khan.

During Indian general election of 2014, KRK had tweeted he would leave India if Modi became prime minister of India. On 18 May 2014, he posted a morphed screenshot of a tweet where he had replaced his name with that of Shah Rukh Khan. This triggered a controversy as some media outlets didn’t investigate and credited the tweet to Shah Rukh Khan.

On the day of release of Kochadaiiyaan on 23 May 2014, Khan made a derogatory remark about the film on Twitter. His post read, “I will review #Heropanti on coming Thursday but I will not watch Crap film #Kochadaiiyaan.”

While the tweet got hardly retweeted, fans of Rajinikanth trolled him for days together for the post.
