New Delhi: Actor Shah Rukh Khan's house was attacked on early Friday morning.
CNN-IBN spoke to him in London where he is for a check up. Hereâ€™s the transcript of his conversation.
I am shocked. In fact, if I wasn't a movie star or didn't take a lot of things in my stride, I would be really, really depressed.
I postponed my surgery so that I can see the film (Billu Barber). I wanted Irfan and Lara to have a good beginning in the film. Everything has turned out well, and now we have people finding controversial stuff where nothing exists like that. There seems to be some person who misheard the lyrics of the song. The lyrics of the song are, rab ke hazur meh and they misheard as rab ke hazur neh and they say we are talking about the prophet but we are not. Rab ka hazur meh means in the presence of, face to face with god, but they thought we were talking about the prophet but the connotation is not at all like that.
We have clarified to the people who were at the cinema hall. Now they have made an announcement that absolutely everything will be alright. They have admitted that they had misheard it. There is nothing controversial or derogatory about any religion.
I am not scared of my safety. I believe in goodness and I don't think good people get to suffer. Yes, I do get scared for the fact that somebody hurled a bottle of kerosene in my house. I get worried about my children and my wife and also the people who are going to the theatres to watch the film.
There is no other safer place than my home.
I am in London to do a checkup for my surgery which is on the February 16 in Mumbai. My family is a strong family. So I am really not scared.
