Shah Rukh Khan denies meeting Lalit Modi in London


Bollywood cinestar Shah Rukh Khan, the co-owner of Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders, has clarified that he did not meet former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi in London.

When asked during an interview to NDTV if he met the former IPL boss during his stay in London, Khan said if he had met Modi, it would be out by now.

“No, I didn’t even have a vacation in London… I was shooting in Bulgaria… I finished in the evening, took the morning… (sic) After because it was the last night… we were awake till about 6 in the morning… chatting and talking… and just about we entered the plane at about 2 o clock landed in the evening and next day I had my daughter’s and son’s admission.
“So, I hardly had time there… No I did not meet Lalit Modi… If I had, he would have told everyone,” Shah Rukh stated.

Sushma Swaraj has been in the eye of storm after it was revealed that she had allegedly committed an act of conflict of interest by requesting the British authorities to issue travel documents to Modi, who was wanted by the Enforcement Directorate in a multi-crore scandal.
