Shahrukh Khan's intolerance controversy continues! The actor who addressed the issue of Shiv Sena calling for a ban on Pakistani actors, cricketers and musicians in Maharashtra has become a topic of national discussion.
From being compared to a terrorist like Hafiz Saeed to being called a Pakistani agent, Shahrukh Khan has heard it all! In an interview that took place on his birthday, all the actor did was share his opinion and the next thing we know, he has been asked to leave the country.

He said in an interview to NDTV channel, "Religious intolerance, or intolerance of any kind, is the worst thing and will take us to the dark ages...nobody has more right to live in this country than me, and I am not going to leave. So shut up."
Surprisingly while many controversial leaders remarked against the actor, asking him to go and settle in Pakistan, the Shiv Sena backed the actor saying that he should not be targeted because he is a Muslim. Now, that's wow! No one expected Shiv Sena of all the people in India to be backing Shahrukh Khan especially since it is they who want Pakistani actors to be banned from Maharashtra.
Shahrukh Khan has obtained support nationwide from citizens, actors and many more! The Bollywood fraternity is backing up SRK big time and hopefully their unity will result in such insane ban requests being banned!
