Hrithik Roshan Extends Support to Shah Rukh Khan Amidst Controversy over His Muslim Identity in 2015
Bollywood News: Shah Rukh Khan has frequently found himself embroiled in controversy due to statements he has made on various occasions. One such incident occurred in 2015 when SRK referred to the country as having “extreme intolerance” and asserted that he was being singled out because of his Muslim identity.
These remarks sparked widespread outrage on social media, with calls for a boycott of his films. It’s worth noting that during the same year, several leading Bollywood actors returned their National Awards as a form of protest against growing intolerance in the country. However, Hrithik Roshan emerged as a supporter of the superstar, offering his backing in the midst of the controversy.
During the midst of numerous controversies, Shah Rukh Khan made a public statement acknowledging the existence of intolerance, stating, “There is intolerance, there is extreme intolerance, There is, I think, there is growing intolerance.” However, his remark faced severe backlash, enraging his fans and causing widespread discontent.
In a recent resurfaced video from an event, Hrithik Roshan was confronted with a question about Shah Rukh Khan’s controversial remarks. To everyone’s surprise, Hrithik responded with a concise yet impactful answer, stating, “I support everybody. I am a good guy.” The clip, which was shared by a Reddit user, quickly garnered attention.
A Redditor, expressing their thoughts on the video, suggested, “With that very attitude, you should consider playing the role of a villain. Take on a character of a conman or a fraudster in a thrilling drama, brother. It will be amazing, I’m telling you. Set a subtle, Dunkirk-like soundtrack in the background. It will create a sense of terror, a sense of terror.”
