Shahrukh Khan made his remark on the rise in intolerance in India last year in a TV interview and since then, he has been deeply protested by various political leaders and VHP leaders from al over the nation. His statement affected him so much that his Christmas release Dilwale was stopped from getting being released in various regions of country including Delhi, Haryana, UP and various parts of Gujarat.
Later SRK also admitted that his statement has affected the result of his movie which starred Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon with him and the talkie was directed by Rohit Shetty.
“He should think, living in this country which gave him name, fame and riches, if he keeps on talking about non-existence intolerance, the VHP will never forgive him”, Ranchod Bharwad, VHP General Secretary, Gujarat said.
However, Shahrukh has cleared himself and said he didn’t mean that there is intolerance in the nation and he does not regret whatever he said.
