The Shahrukh Khan- Shiv Sena war of words is showing no signs of ending. The Bollywood superstar has refused to apologise for his comments where he backed the Pakistani players for the third season of the IPL. Addressing a press conference in London on Wednesday, King Khan said that he believed in what he said and there was no reason why he should apologise to anybody.
Shahrukh said "I would not apologise. I said what I believe in as an Indian. I haven't said anything personally against anyone. I would apologise to my director, co-stars, business partners if because of me, the film is affected. It's really sad, makes me rethink. I have apologised in the past if my film has caused offence - to hairstylists for Barber. But here, what am I supposed to apologise for? It's just very sad,"
The My Name Is Khan actor added "I think what I said is true of any person from any nation from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, America, England. That's how I think we've all been brought up. You say 'ok, my country is nice, I'm very proud of it, I'm very proud to have been born there and I wish a lot of people come to my country and participate in the goodness of my country.' If that is wrong then I think I need to re-look at what my children are studying right now. I need to even ask people who think the statement is wrong."
