“People put words in the air even before thinking. Intolerance religiously…not being secular in this country is the worst crime you can do as a patriot“, the Bollywood star has said.

When asked whether he is thinking to return the awards on the line of other writers and filmmakers, Khan said, “I have not been in a situation like that. But I respect the people. If they think this gesture is going to turn things around, it is very brave, very honest”.

His comments soon evoked sharp response from the ruling BJP.



BJP’s National General Secretary P Muralidhar Rao took to twitter and posted:

SRK, while speaking at a Twitter townhall also said that though he was with the cause for which writers, filmmakers and many others have returned their national award, he was not going to do so, he said:
