On November 2, Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan celebrated his 53rd birthday and a large pool of fans had gathered outside Mannat to catch a glimpse of the Zero actor. Shah Rukh too stepped out in the balcony to greet his fans post midnight, waved out to them and blew kisses as they hooted and cheered for their favourite star. However, there will always be few fans, who wish to meet the superstar in person or stand outside the gate for hours just to get a glimpse of him, but don't get the chance to see him. One such fan, Mohammad Salim Alauddin, who didn't get to meet SRK, slit his throat right outside Shah Rukh Khan's residence.
