He may be the superstar of Bollywood, but his life is not free of worries and tensions. After almost a year of the birth of his surrogate son, Shah Rukh Khan obtained relief in the case which alleged that he and his wife Gauri had undergone a Sex Determination Test prior to his birth to check whether they were having a boy child. Bhunesh Chawla tweets, “So used to hearing this word..CLEAN CHIT..“Shah Rukh Khan gets clean chit in surrogacy case.”
The petition had been submitted by Varsha Deshpande, an activist who was denied permission by lower court to get her hands on the documents proving the surrogacy. She had alleged that the doctors had gone against the PCPNDT Act of prohibition of fetal sex determination and had informed the couple about the gender of the child in its pre-natal stage. Well wishers have taken a relieving breath. Sekhar tweets, “Today The Bombay High Court has dismissed apetition filed against SRK by #PublicityKiBhookiVarsha Deshpande. \m/.”Despite all the hype, fans had been relentless in supporting their King.Naveedzonline tweeted,”@iamsrk whats d news abt surrogacy..hope its all fake n rumours.” In fact he went on to allege, “Thanx for sharing… i guess that NGO activist wanted make publicity in d name of @iamsrk and be in the news headlines loop..”
Pranav Badheka, the actor’s advocate appealed to the High Court saying Deshpande’s allegations were false and that the baby was already born when the apparent information put forth by the activist was published. It was only to grab the attention of the media and create mayhem in public. While Uday Warunjikar, lawyer of Varsha Deshpande sought a quick hearing of the case which was however declined by the High Court, thus bringing in relief for the actor and the family. SRK can now contemplate spending some happy time playing a Dad to his infant once more, now that the issue has been resolved.
For one thing we know, celebs here find it easy to mend ways and even get favoring judgements. However, the million dollar question points at a social problem staring us in the face.As Women Web tweeted,”The #SRK case raises the question again: Commercial surrogacy maybe legal, but is it moral?”
