Just a couple of days back we broke the news about Shah Rukh Khan's visit to the historic Aligarh Muslim University, along with writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar and his actress wife Shabana Azmi. The program is slated for this Saturday at around 1:30 pm, when SRK is scheduled to interact directly with the students at AMU's Kennedy Hall auditorium.

However, there are concerns regarding King Khan's safety as the internal security is fully in the hands of the university's ill-equipped baton wielding Proctorial force, rather than the district administration.

While the university administration is considering letting in a select number of students and no outsiders will be permitted, there is unprecedented buzz and excitement. Even the university's PRO Rahat Abrar accepts that there are demands for passes by the minute, as everyone in town wants to meet King Khan!

What makes the situation worse is that the teaching faculty has been totally ignored and AMUTA (Aligarh Muslim University Teachers Association) has no involvement of any kind. In the past the teaching faculty has actively participated in such VIP visits and helped in keeping the students disciplined. Given the huge buzz and unprecedented excitement on the campus, there is every likelihood of some unpleasant incident taking place.

In addition to the above, the extreme climatic conditions, especially the dense fog prevailing in North India may well prove to be a dampener, as SRK, Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi may find it difficult and hazardous to arrive either via air or road.

In fact as we are finalizing this story, there are indications of a probable cancellation of the visit for now. Keep tuned to your favourite portal for more exclusives, as always.
