Johannesburg: Young men who stay away from polling stations on election day should learn from Bollywood megstar Shah Rukh Khan.
SRK will himself air-dash to India from South Africa (where he is with his team Kolkata Knight Riders for the IPL), just to cast his vote.
Shah Rukh Khan also encouraged youngsters to come out and vote during the ongoing elections in India.
Badsha of Bollywood had earlier expressed his disappointment at the fact that people are always complaining about the state of affairs in this country, when they have no right to do so if they don"t cast their vote.
“Nobody has the right to complain about the country until he or she votes. First cast your vote and if the elected people don"t work, then you can go ahead and complain," he said.
“Selecting your candidate is not that hard. Just go around in your locality and ask people who have done work in the area. Then you assess and vote. It doesn"t take more than two days to assess the candidates in your area," he added.

However Shah Rukh Khan politely declined earlier offers to join political rallies of any South African parties in the run-up to the elections here last Wednesday, which was overwhelmingly won by the African National Congress (ANC), Khan will head back to India on Wednesday, together with his family, wife Gauri and children Aryan and Suhana.
Shah Rukh Khan said he had warned his team members that if they did well in his absence, he would return; if not, he would be shouting at them from India.
