A Pakistani shoemaker and a big fan Bollywood actor, Shah Rukh Khan landed in jail for designing special Peshawari chappals made out of deer skin for his favourite star.
According to reports Noor Jehan, SRK’s cousin in Peshawar, on King Khan’s special request approached shoemaker Jehangir Khan and asked him to make two pairs of Peshawari chappals (in Kaptaan Chappal style) for the actor so she can take them to India with her on her visit.
Jehangir Khan is famous for having designed a Peshawari chappal for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif made from lion skin.
Dawn News reports that the shoemaker himself is big Shah Rukh Khan fan, so when asked for such a request, he decided to gift his special Peshawari chappals made from deer skin.
Ironically, what landed him in jail was his own carelessness; in a robust move, the shoemaker told media that he’ll be sending shoes made of deer skin to the Dilwale actor. After the news broke, local wildlife officials had Jehangir arrested on August 26, they also took with them the deer skin and the shoes. The poor chap was put behind bars before his shoes could say ‘touchdown’ across the border.
However, a latest update claims that Jehangir has since been released from jail. A wildlife official said, “We have taken the deer skin chappals for examination to see whether they are made of deer skin or of other animal. We’ll find out the result on Monday.”
Jehangir will subsequently be fined based on the findings.
Noor Jehan also said that that she spoke to Shah Rukh Khan last night and he specifically told her to come with the Peshawari chappals when she comes to visit India.
This is not the first time she’s giving locally designed sandals to Shah Rukh Khan, she gifted him a pair in 1997 also.
