Khan ‘sad’ at pa­triot jibes

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Bol­ly­wood su­per­star Shah Rukh Khan says he be­came “sad” and felt like “cry­ing” when he was asked to prove his pa­tri­o­tism. Khan said at an event in Novem­ber last year that there was “noth­ing worse than re­li­gious in­tol­er­ance and that it would take In­dia to the Dark Ages”. His re­marks were crit­i­cised by some po­lit­i­cal lead­ers and he was ac­cused of be­ing un­pa­tri­otic. “Some­times I feel very sad, I even feel like cry­ing, that I should be made to say that I be­long to this country, I am a pa­triot. I am a pa­triot, rather we all are. We do not have to com­pete with oth­ers to say we are pa­tri­ots,” he said on TV show Aap Ki Adalat. “I get very sad some­times when I am sup­posed to ex­plain each and ev­ery time how good a pa­triot am I.”
