New Delhi: Controversial film personality Kamaal R Khan always manages to stay in the spotlight, no matter what! He was recently arrested for making hateful comments about the late film actors Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan, and in another case for soliciting sexual favors from an actress. Now, days after being released from prison, he has something new to say.
KRK took to its Twitter account and said that filmmaker Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgn were not behind his arrest. “Many people say that @karanjohar is behind my arrest. No, that is not true. #Karan #SRK #Aamir #Ajay #Akshay etc have nothing to do with my arrest,” he tweeted.

People on social media started making fun of the statement as soon as it was made public. A user asked if it was Salman Khan as he didn’t mention his name. Another user said that Ranbir Kapoor could be behind his arrest as his review could have destroyed “Brahmastra”. Well, nobody takes KRK seriously!
He previously made a shocking statement that he survived 10 days in prison on water alone and lost 10kg in the process! If that’s less, his son even compared him to actor Sushant Singh Rajput, saying he doesn’t want his father to die like him.
I survived 10 days in prison on water alone. So I lost 10 kg.

According to police, KRK was arrested back in 2020 for FIR against his controversial social media posts. The FIR was filed based on a complaint dated April 30, 2020 by Yuva-Sena leader Rahul Kanal, in which he claimed KRK’s tweets about the late Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor were intended to spread “hate.” Rahul had said on FIR that a person named Kamal R Khan regularly spreads hatred on social media. “He came to Bollywood with a film called ‘Deshdrohi’ and he’s really acting like one. Even if the world is going through a pandemic, I cannot understand his inhumane behavior and the spread of hatred in all walks of life.”
The complainant said KRK made hateful comments against the late actors Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor. “After Irrfan Khan, India’s pride passed away, he made bad claims and statements about him. He also spoke crap about late senior actor Rishi Kapoor,” he said in the complaint. On September 5, KRK was arrested by Versova police for allegedly demanding sexual favors from an actress and holding the applicant’s hand during the first week of January 2019. He was later released on bail in that case. In both cases he got bail.
