Pakistani shoemaker jailed for designing special Peshawari chappals for Shah Rukh Khan


As if the pool incident wasn’t enough, this time a Pakistani fan landed himself in jail for designing Peshawari chappals made out of deer skin for his favourite Bollywood actor, Shah Rukh Khan.

Speaking to DawnNews, Noor Jehan, SRK’s cousin in Peshawar, said that on King Khan’s special request she approached shoemaker Jehangir Khan and asked him to make two pairs of Peshawari chappals (in Kaptaan Chappal style) for the actor so she can take them to India with her on her visit.

The shoemaker happens to be a huge Shah Rukh Khan fan, so when asked for such a request, he decided to gift his idol special Peshawari chappals made from deer skin.

Ironically, what landed him in jail was his own carelessness; in a robust move, the shoemaker told media that he’ll be sending shoes made of deer skin to theDilwale actor. After the news broke, local wildlife officials had Jehangir arrested on August 26, they also took with them the deer skin and the shoes. The poor chap was put behind bars before his shoes could say ‘touchdown’ across the border.

However, a latest update claims that Jehangir has since been released from jail. A wildlife official said, “We have taken the deer skin chappals for examination to see whether they are made of deer skin or of other animal. We’ll find out the result on Monday.”
