Controversy over my article nonsense: Shah Rukh Khan

Jan 29 2013, 11:34am CST | by

Mumbai, Jan 29 (IANS) Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan Tuesday termed the controversy kicked up Pakistan's interior minister as "nonsense".

Mumbai, Jan 29 — Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan Tuesday termed the controversy kicked up Pakistan's interior minister as "nonsense".

"To address this whole issue with regards to my article that has taken an unwarranted twist, I do not even understand the basis of this controversy. This is what can only be called nonsense. It is deja vu again," he told reporters at an event here late Tuesday.

Speaking about the article that was at the centre of the controversy, Khan said: "The article I wrote was actually meant to reiterate that on some occasions my being an Indian Muslim film star is misused by bigots and narrow minded people who have misplaced religious ideologies for small gains. And ironically, the same has happened through this article, once again," said a dejected Khan.

Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik had Monday said that India should provide security to Shah Rukh Khan, wading into a controversy triggered by Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed stating that the star could move to Pakistan following his comments on being a Muslim.

Saeed had said Khan could move to Pakistan if he does not feel safe in India after the superstar gave a first person account for Outlook Turning Points magazine, published in association with The New York Times newspaper.

Khan said that the primary reason why people reacted to his article was because they did not read it.

"I think some of the people have not even read it and are reacting to comments of people, who in turn have also not read it," he said.

"I implore everyone here to read the article and convey through your respective mediums of communications all the good things that it expresses to youngsters and my fellow Indians," he added.

Khan said that the feelings expressed in the article are heartfelt and are extremely important aspect of his life.

"The article is an appreciation of love that all of you have bestowed upon me and also a point of view from my being a father of two young children," he said.
