Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly got into trouble with state health department for finding out the sex of his unborn child through surrogacy. Last week media was abuzz with reports that King Khan and his wife Gauri were set to have a boy through surrogacy.

The radiologists' association has asked the state health department to inquire into news and find out how the star couple has got to know about the sex of their unborn child when sex determination is illegal in India.

Sources have revealed that state's Indian Radiological and Imaging Associations (IRIA) has objected to King Khan finding and revealing the sex of their unborn child in the wake of reports of skewed sex ratio across Maharashtra, including Mumbai. It is said they are contemplating strict action against radiologists for allegedly conducting illegal sex determination.

IRIA has demanded an investigation into the matter and has sent an email to the top state health department officials, including state health minister Suresh Shetty. It is also reported that if the news is confirmed then it means that celebs are breaking the law. This case has also gained momentum as the person who has been accused of determining the sex of the child is a celebrity and this will set a wrong example.

However, the star couple has refused to comment on it. Investigators are also trying to find out if the star couple got the sex determined outside India, where it is legal. — TOI

There is a big reason for this law in India because quite wrongfully and shamefully females are considered of lower value to males.

One law for everyone. Celebs are not above the law. If found guilty they should be treated the same as anyone else in this matter.

SRK always trapped in controversial matter each year. Few month before by saying Indians have misbehavior with him (Forbes Magazine). Fighting with Security guard in Mumbai Cricket Ground during IPL-5. Fighting with Sallu in a Party. Clashes with Shiv-Sena on "My name is Khan" movie. Now this about his third child.

@Ali: Which country is more pathetic, the one which can hold the elitist of its society guilty for not abiding to the law or the one where elitists have free will to do anything like in Pakistan?

Dear Does not matter: Do you not think your great intellect was a little wasted here with such a question. I mean, really, you couldn't ponder about something a little more meaningful?
