Bollywood actor and film critic Kamaal Rashid Khan is now eyeing a political career.
Popularly known as KRK, he was recently arrested by the Mumbai Police and was jailed over his controversial tweets against film personalities dating back to 2020. He was later granted bail and was released last week.
On Thursday morning, he took to Twitter to share his political plans with his followers. “I am considering to join a political party soon. Kyunki desh mein surakshit rehne ke liye neta hona zaruri hai, abhineta nahi!” his tweet read.
A day ago, KRK had tweeted that Bollywood celebs including Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn had nothing to do with his arrest.
KRK was arrested as soon as he landed in Mumbai from Dubai on August 30. The FIR was lodged on the basis of a complaint by Yuva Sena leader Rahul Kanal on April 30, 2020, where he alleged that KRK’s tweets on the late Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor allegedly spread “hatred”.
The same day he was sent into 14-day judicial custody.
On September 5, KRK was arrested by Versova Police for allegedly demanding sexual favours from an actress and holding the complainant’s hand in the first week of January 2019.
He later got bail in both cases.
