Fans sometimes go to great lengths to profess their love for their favourite celebrity. And on such classic example was Shah Rukh Khan‘s film Fan. But now a recent antic by a fans trumps all. Reported by a leading daily, a crazy fan went to a great extent as he registered a company in UK three years back on December 28, 2016, under the names of Shah Rukh Khan and the family members of Salman Khan, and listed them as directors.
The registered address of Bros Brothers International was a mailbox at Knightsbridge in London. Among the 13 directors, Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan, his brothers Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan, and his Being Human foundation, Shah Rukh Khan and more were listed. It was reported that the company engaged in “activities of extraterritorial organizations and bodies.” It is also reported that the company shut down this year in February.
Not only that but another interesting, or should we say a scary thing was the address on the company profile, it was Shah Rukh Khan’s Mumbai home Mannat, while Salim Khan’s Galaxy Apartments in Bandra was registered. Another director named on the list was Anjali Sharma, who was the character in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ which saw SRK, Kajol and Rani Mukherjee in the lead roles. What even scarry that Bros Brothers International was registered the same year as ‘Fan’ released.
It was Paul Myers, lead support of the BBC Investigation Initiative, found the company of Bros Brothers International while doing online research on some companies in the UK. He said “It is someone’s deranged idea of a joke. Registering all Indian actors as directors of this almost fictional company.” However, Salman’s manager squashed these rumours and stated that the actor and his family or Being Human Foundation was never associated with the company.
