A Pakistani shoemaker was arrested on Friday by local authorities for designing special “Peshawari chappals” for Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

According to a report in The Dawn, Shah Rukh Khan requested his cousin Noor Jehan, who lives in Peshawar, for two pairs of Peshawari chappals in Kaptaan style.

Noor Jehan approached the famous shoemaker Jehangir Khan for making these chappals.

Jehangir Khan, a big fan of King Khan, decided to gift his idol special Peshawari chappals made from deer skin and he shared this news with local media.

However, after hearing the news, local wildlife officials arrested Jehangir Khan and also took with them the deer skin and the shoes for examination to see whether they are made of deer skin or of any other animal.

"We have taken the deer skin chappals for examination to see whether they are made of deer skin or of other animal. We'll find out the result on Monday, “a wildlife official was quoted as saying by The Dawn.

However, a latest report claims that Jehangir has since been released from jail and will be subsequently fined based on probe results.

Jehangir Khan is famous for having designed a Peshawari chappal for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif made from lion skin.
