French actor Jhon Rachid threw open a can of worms as Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) fans who call themselves ‘SRKians’ descended on his Twitter timeline, censuring him for sharing an image of actors Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jackie Chan while cropping out SRK from the frame. The fervid SRKians had gone bonkers as Rachid had cropped out superstar Shah Rukh Khan from his uploaded picture while retaining the other actors Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jackie Chan.
A few days ago, Shah Rukh Khan shared a picture of his along with actors Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jackie Chan on Twitter during their recent meet-up in an event in Riyadh. Khan, along with other dignitaries were in Riyadh for attending Joy Forum, an initiative by GEA, to develop the entertainment industry in the Saudi Kingdom. Sharing a selfie picture with Van Damme and Jackie Chan, SRK tweeted that he got an opportunity to meet his heroes.
Three days later Rachid uploaded the picture shared by Khan but evidently cutting SRK out, triggering his ardent followers. Many passionate SRK fans took to Twitter to express their anguish on this purported slight and slammed the french actor for leaving out Khan.
Wishing hell upon Rachid, one livid Twitter user proclaimed that SRK is the biggest movie star.
Taking a jibe at actor Tushar Kapoor, another Twitter user who seemed aggrieved by Rachid’s post ignoring SRK said that not even Tushar Kapoor deserves such insult.
One SRK fan insinuated that the french actor is jealous of SRK to have him crop out of the picture.
Another one candidly admitted that he felt pained to see SRK snubbed but was happy that the french actor Jhon Rachid was being slammed by foreigners.
After the hate he received, he acknowledged how he had cropped out SRK from the frame but he ‘died laughing’ because of the first international buzz he created for negative publicity.
Jhon Rachid, whose real name is Mohamed Kefi is an Algerian born comedian and actor currently settled in France.
