Shahrukh Khan said that he would have apologised to the Shiv Sena if it was for the content of his film, as he had done so before because his aim is to entertain people and not to offend them. However, he chose not to apologise this time around, as the issue was about the person he is and his Indianness.
It maybe recalled that political outfits, particularly the Shiv Sena, threatened to ban the release of My Name is Khan if Shahrukh didn't apologise for his comment on the inclusion of Pakistan cricketers in the IPL. However, they finally allowed peaceful release of the film.
Bollywood Baadshah risked his film My Name is Khan by refusing to apologise to the Shiv Sena, who came down heavily on him for supporting the inclusion of Pakistani cricketers in the IPL. After keeping silent for a while, he has spoken out his mind again.
