After Aamir Khan, now Shahrukh Khan also expressed his opinion on the controversial AIB Roast featuring Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor. Shahrukh Khan who till date was not heard of saying anything about the much talked about show, finally spoke his mind out in an interview.
In an interview, Shahrukh Khan was asked to express his views on AIB Roast and the controversy surrounding the show, however, the actor apparently kept it safe with a 'no side taking' policy.
SRK opined that humour always offers a radical reaction and is based on a very thin line. "I am someone who has always believed in sense of humour. Over the years, my sense of humour is rounded off if not completely over. I have learnt to curtail it because there is always going to be a thin line when it comes to humour. It's always going to invoke radical reaction, either you are going to laugh at it or hate it."
Happy New Year actor Shahrukh Khan said that one has to be careful with his words but also added that he can't take sides. "When you are a popular actor like I am, people listen to you. So, you need to relook at it and I am only speaking about myself here. There will always be issues and questions. I can't take any sides," said SRK.
Shahrukh Khan who strongly believes in freedom of expression also stressed on the freedom of choice that today's media offers to the viewers. "There is always freedom of expression and there is a choice you have to make. I always say that if you don't like something don't watch it.
Nobody is shoving it down your throat but if you don't like something and you have watched it then live with it. There are a lot of movies that I have watched and didn't like but I don't have the right to go and blame the person who made them," said Shahrukh.
Having said that, Shahrukh Khan also stressed on the need to follow some control mechanism. "The beauty of today's media is that the power of choice is in your hand, you can decide to watch or not to watch something. But having said that, I think I have become very aware of the fact that I need to follow some control aspect. But I will not be able to comment on what others do, how they do or why they do," Bollywood's richest actor Shahrukh Khan said.
