We all know that the Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Jawan’ has been on a roll ever since the time it was released. The film has been consistently breaking one record after another to emerge as one of the top grossing films in Bollywood. One of the major driving forces of the film is indeed the towering presence of Shah Rukh Khan. The fan following and the craze for King Khan is well known by everyone. There are times when the fans tend to go overboard with their fandom, not thinking about the consequences thereon.

Fans go overboard during the film’s screening
One such incident happened today at a theatre in Malegaon (Maharashtra). As per a report in The Free Press Journal, a few of Shah Rukh Khan’s fans had come to watch the film in Mohan Theatre, Malegaon. After the film got started, a few members from the audience got up and not just lit and burst firecrackers, but also a few twine-bombs… all inside the theatre which was dark, since the film was being screened. The report also stated that these cinegoers had even lit a few firecracker rockets that had hit the ceiling, thus scaring the others who were present inside the theatre.

Management had to step in to control the chaos
Seeing the chaos, scare and the unrest amongst the audience which was caused by the fireworks, the theatre management immediately stepped in and switched on the lights. By that time, the theatre was filled with smoke and the smell of the fireworks. All of this led to a few women leaving the theatre, while a few others were reportedly shooting the entire episode on their mobile phones.

Police arrives on the scene
Amidst all this chaos, the police officials rushed to the theatre and even took away a few of the miscreants and detained them for a brief period of time. The police officials also issued a warning to the miscreants stating that lighting of firecrackers inside the theatre was illegal. The said report also stated that the show of ‘Jawan’ had resumed after a break of 20 minutes.
