Dog Named Shah Rukh Doesn't Live With Aamir Any More

Bollywood star Aamir Khan's dog named Shah Rukh no longer lives at his Panchgani home, says a media report.

Recently, the dog moved out of Aamir's Panchgani bungalow because his master, Aamir's caretaker, moved out, taking his dog with him.

A person close to Aamir said, “Since the old caretaker is out, there was no point keeping the dog Shah Rukh. The dog had to go with the caretaker.”
The dog Shah Rukh had played a big role in widening the rift between the two Khans.

 After Aamir had written on his blog, “Shah Rukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for?” and “Shah Rukh is smelling too much, I think he needs a bath,” bad vibes began between the two stars.

While both were battling it out for supremacy at the box-office this sort of banter had only made them more competitive. 

Evidently, after a while Aamir & Co changed the dog's name. After calling him Shah Rukh for sometime, they had started calling him Shahki.

There is an explanation for the dog's name too. Said the source, “The old caretaker is a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan. Since Shah Rukh was shooting in Panchgani when the dog was born, he had named him Shah Rukh. Later, he himself started calling him Shahki and the others, in and around Aamir's Panchgani property, followed suit.”

Things seem to be a lot better between the two Khans now. In April 2009, they came together on the same platform to support the producers in their fight against the multiplex owners. Recently, Shah Rukh attended the premiere of 3 Idiots.
