Bollywood’s King, aka Shah Rukh Khan, recently made an appearance on a dance reality show hosted by Remo D’Souza. The actor was the chief guest and was also part of the panel that judged the contestants based on their performances. During his time on the sets of the TV show, the star once again made a statement that every Indian should appreciate.
Shah Rukh said, “Humne koi Hindu-Musalman ki baat hi nahi ki. Meri biwi Hindu hai, mai Musalman hoon. Aur mere jo bacche hain, wo Hindustan hain.” Everyone clapped as he continued, “Jab woh school gaye to school me woh bharna padta hai ki religion kya hai. To jab meri beti choti thi, usne aa ke pucha bhi mujhse ek baar, ‘Papa hum kaun se religion ke hain?’ Maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye. (We have never discussed Hindu-Muslim. My wife is Hindu, I am a Muslim and our kids are Hindustan. When they went to school, they had to mention their religion. My daughter came to me once and asked ‘what is our religion?’ I simply wrote in her form that we are Indian, we do not have a religion.)”
We couldn’t agree more, Shah Rukh Khan.
