Shahrukh Khan defends his buddy, Aamir Khan in the ongoing controversy about intolerance!
Conveying that he doesn't need to prove his patriotism to the country, SRK says, "You don't have to be proving your patriotism in any other way, except for thinking good for the country and doing good. You have to work for the benefit of the country. If I work for the country in the most kindest way in what I am good at, my country is going to benefit from that. But if I am corrupt and regional about it, I will be harming my country."
Further talking about the negative side of social media, Shahrukh says, "Twitter and social media is about free voice, people do take very radical steps, they get abusive. Even a generic statement can be turned into radical statements by people."
Dilwale actor also added that, based on Aamir's recent controversy, he has no decided not to speak about things he doesn't have knowledge of, "I'm relieved now that I should now talk only about what I know. I need not speak on any and every other topic on which someone feels that I should speak on because I have been around for 25 years."
Even Aamir clarified his statement saying, "Neither I nor my wife Kiran, have any intention of leaving the country. We never did, and nor would we like to in the future. Anyone implying the opposite has either not seen my interview or is deliberately trying to distort what I have said. India is my country, I love it, I feel fortunate for being born here, and this is where I am staying."
With Dilwale movie approaching its release date, SRK doesn't want to risk saying anything and getting trapped in yet another controversy.
