Shah Rukh Khan Urges Shiv Sena To Sort Out The IPL Comment Controversy
Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan is moved by Shiv Sena’s mistaken notion about his IPL comment. He urges that Shiv Sena should sort out the matter with him and not go for such non-related acts like banning the screening of his forthcoming movie ‘My Name is Khan’.
In his statement Khan said, "If there is an issue with me you have to sort it out with me and talk to me about my ideology.” "As far as the film is concerned, that is an incidental thing. According to me, that's not something they should take their ire against and hopefully they won't and nobody will and it will release and, inshallah, people will like it."
Shah Rukh refuses to apologize despite being threatened that his film won’t be allowed to be screened. In this regard he said "I have nothing to respond." Shah Rukh had shown his disagreement to the expulsion of Pakistani players from IPL tournament which angered the Shiv Sena.
Regarding the banning of the movie ‘My Name is Khan Shah Rukh said, "I don't even understand what 'My Name Is Khan' has got to do with what I say.” "You know 'My Name Is Khan' is not only my film. It has got Kajol and Karan (Johar) and hundred and fifty other people whose livelihood depends on that."
Shah Rukh still holds on to his ideology and says, “if there is an issue with me you have to sort it out with me and talk to me about my ideology." "I have no take on anybody's statement.” "I can only do a take on my statement. And what I say and what everyone believes in... what I say that we are Indians and we should have everyone like to live freely and happily and be good."
Shah Rukh owns the Kolkata Knight Riders team. He had expressed his opinion about the inclusion of Pakistani players in the IPL team. He said, "And so there is nothing new, we learnt it in class three civics books till I finished my masters that this is what I was taught by my parents and my mom." "And I don't know what the issue is really. I mean what is wrong in saying what I say that everyone is welcome to my country and I welcome them with open arms, whether it's art, culture, sport, politics... you know, whatever."
He added, "Everyone has got the right to do what they wish to do in our country. That's why it's the biggest democracy apparently.”
