Users also flooded the platform with a good riddance call for a list of brands that Khan was associated with, including Big Basket, Hyundai India, ICICI Bank, Reliance Jio, Dubai Tourism, among others.
On the other hand, some users harboured more hate towards the actor for being photographed with Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan, labelling him 'anti-national' and a 'traitor'.

The actor's son Aryan Khan was one of the 19 people that have been arrested in the drugs case, so far.
Fact: Shah Rukh Khan is the most recognized & loved Indian globally after Mahatma Gandhi. Every country that I have visited, when I tell people that I am from India, they invariably say "Shah Rukh Khan". He does not spend tax payers money for image building & is genuinely loved!— Tehseen Poonawalla Official (@tehseenp) October 10, 2021
