Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s comment on extreme intolerance in India last month not only landed him in soup but also brought trouble to his ambitious film “Dilwale”, if protests in parts of country on Friday are any indication. Senior BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya who tweeted against SRK in November for his comments, laid another attack on messages floated on social networking sites by Pakistani terrorist Hafeez Saeed saying, “Help Shah Rukh”.
“It’s all exposed when Pakistani terrorist Saeed calls upon to support Dilwale and spews venom against India saying teach lesson to Indians”, said Vijayvargiya while taking exclusively to TOI on phone from Birpur in West Bengal. He said BJP has no official stand on film Dilwale while personally he is not opposing it. “But the way public has shown its anger to protest against the film, it shows people do not want to hear against the country anymore”, commented Vijayvargiya.
“It depends on an individual to like or dislike the film but, anybody says anything against the country then people will react. People of India love the country and if anyone hurts their feelings then it comes out with an outrage and people are free to express. Who can stop them ?” said Vijayvargiya.
Earlier, in November Vijayvargiya’s tweet raked up controversy when he reacted on SRK’s intolerant comment saying, “SRK’s soul is in Pakistan even if he lives in India, there was no way his army of fans would let him get away with it”. Another tweet added, “Shah Rukh Khan lives in India, but his heart is in Pakistan. His films make crores here but he finds India intolerant.” When the five-tweet attack triggered outrage, Vijayvargiya retracted his comments saying they had been misunderstood.
