SRK refuses to play Lalit Modi in Commissioner
Shah Rukh Khan has refused to play the role of Indian Premiere League chairman Lalit Modi in Percept Picture Company’s film Commissioner. The film is based on Modi’s life, seen from a journalist’s eye.
SRK has chosen not to play the role because he is a franchisee of the Kolkota Knight Riders team of the IPL. The actor ostensibly does not want to get dragged into any controversy related to Modi.
In fact, Joint MD of Percept, Shailendra Singh said the film was conceived before Lalit Modi got into difficulties about the IPL auctions.
