A video of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan went viral on Sunday, where the actor is seen expressing his views on religion.
The actor said these words on the set of the show Dance Plus 5 that was aired Saturday night. In the video, the actor 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. Jab wo school gae to school me wo bharna padta hai ki religion kya hai. To jab meri beti choti thi, usne aa ke pucha bhi mujhse ek baar, 'papa hum ka un se religion ke hain?' Maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain y aar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye. (There is no such thing as Hindu-Muslim between is. My wife is Hindu and I am Muslim, my kids are Indian. When they went to school, we had to fill in the religion section. My daughter asked me what is our religion?' and I wrote that we are Indian, we have no other religion and that shouldn't happen either)."
My wife is Hindu, I am a Muslim and my kids are Hindustan. My daughter was asked the religion in school form, I told her we are Indians 🇮🇳 ❤️ - The pride of India Shah Rukh Khan. #RepublicDayIndia #RepublicDay2020 pic.twitter.com/Qk95xxLT3j— Neel Joshi (@neeljoshiii) January 25, 2020
SRK has been vocal about how no religion is pressed inside the house on any members and that they celebrate festivals of every religion with equal fervour. he had told IANS in an earlier interview, "I gave my son and daughter names that could pass for generic (pan-India and pan-religious) ones - Aryan and Suhana. The Khan has been bequeathed by me so they can’t really escape it.”
