An ardent fan of Shah Rukh Khan from Pakistan, landed himself in jail, after he made Peshawari sandals from deer’s skin for the actor.
According to report in DawnNews, Noor Jehan, SRK’s cousin in Peshawar, asked the shoemaker Jehangir Khan 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.

However, soon after his arrest, Jehangir khan was released from jail.
“Apparently Jahangir Khan is a big fan of Shahrukh and decided to send the Bollywood star the special gift. Soon after the news spread, the wildlife department officials contacted us and filed a complaint. We picked him up but he has been released now,” a local police official said.
The sandals made from deer skin
Meanwhile, a probe has been ordered by the wildlife department to examine whether the sandals are made of deer skin or of other animal.
The results are expected to come on 29 August.
The trend for Peshawari chappal gained popularity after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and PTI chief Imran Kahn wore a similar style during different occasions.
