A simple rickshaw driver in Bangladesh has sued Shakib Khan, one of the country's popular actors, for using his phone number in a movie.

Ijajul Mia says he has been inundated with hundreds of calls from Khan's female fans since the release of the movie Rajniti in June this year.

In the movie, Khan is seen and heard calling out Mia's number to his on-screen girlfriend. Such on-screen numbers are thought to be carefully selected, but there appears to have been an error.

Mia, from Jatrapasha village in Baniachang Upazila, Bangladesh, says this has ruined his life and his wife is even threatening to leave him.

He is therefore seeking $60,000 (Ghc255,000) in compensation from Khan.
