Talking to the audience, Shahrukh Khan said that he was very keen to act in Tamil films and he would only play a 'dumb' character because he did not know the language and it would be difficult for him to deliver dialogues with perfection. But the use of the word 'dumb' landed him in trouble
Audience Jayashree made a sharp reaction to Shahrukh Khan's comment. She said that he should avoid using the word 'dumb'. So the King Khan immediately offered his apology and asked her for the right word to refer the people with speech impairment for which she suggested him to use the word 'mute'.
