“I was in Bandra last year, and I thought I would celebrate the day with Shah Rukh bhai. So I got a cake and a bouquet of flowers for him. When I reached Mannat, (his home in Mumbai), I could see large number of people waiting for his sight. I called his staff and they told me that I could only meet him at 1 pm, and it was just 11 am. So, I decided to headback home,” remembers Prashant who has worked in numerous films and ads starring SRK, as his body double.
He further adds, “When I moved towards my cab, I could see hoards of people moving towards me calling out SRK’s name. Suddenly, I found myself in a pool of people who were trying to get a selfie thinking that it was the real Shah Rukh Khan. Some even started crying. I thought I would get mowed down, but luckily cops came to my rescue and pulled me out. Though, they thought I was purposely dressed like SRK and it led to chaos, so they dragged me to the police station. Meanwhile, I got a call from the actor’s staff asking me to come there by 2 pm, but then the cops had already warned me to not be seen in the area again as it led to unwanted ruckus. So, I left.”
