Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan, who is generally vocal regarding problems, has opted to be diplomatic on his response to Salman Khan’s rape comment controversy. Recently the King of Bollywood has told that he himself is relatively inappropriate at times, and is consequently not in a situation to comment.

The Dilwale star told in an occasion that “In the last few years, I have realized that I made so many inappropriate comments myself. I don’t think I am someone to sit and judge somebody else’s comments to be very honest. It’s about taking sides or not taking sides,” he further added “I myself say so many things, who am I to decide what one should do and what not? Whatever he wants to do, he will decide himself.”

Bajrangi Bhaijaan star Salman confronted controversy later than he told during a media interaction that he felt similar to a “raped woman” walking out of a ring in his role as a wrestler in his imminent movie Sultan.


He afterward added, “I don’t think I should have” and elaborated that he discovered it difficult to walk. This led to strong responses from the National Commission for Women (NCW) and also the Shiv Sena.

On the professional side, Shah Rukh declared that he is not performing a warrior or a guide in any movie, the same as it was reported pursuing a few of his tweets.

He posted in a tweet that “I am a warrior, a dwarf and a guide. I am not what I ought to, want or hope to be. I am all that and I am what I am. My two bits on my upcoming roles,”

When inquired regarding the cryptic tweet, Shah Rukh told that “I have been reading. I sometimes just comment on what I read. So I was reading that I’m a warrior in Adi’s (Aditya Chopra) film, I’m a dwarf in Anand’s (Rai) film, which I am, I’m a guide in one of the other films and a counsellor in Gauri Shinde’s film. And there were two other films that I was doing, which I am not doing, at this point.”

He continued by saying that “I’m sure that one day somebody will take me as a warrior and also as a guide. Somebody started writing that the film is based on the wonderful classic Guide by Dev Anand sahab and Vijay Anand sahab. But it’s not like that. I just commented on what I am cryptically reading on Twitter. It wasn’t that I was making a comment on myself.”

Shah Rukh stated about his leg injury “I am working out on my leg. I’m doing some physiotherapy. I have taken time off films and every day I exercise at least one to one-and-a-half hour for the leg. Otherwise I would have had to undergo a surgery which is a long procedure, so I don’t want to do it. God willing, by the time I start Imtiaz’s film, before that I have two months, so working hard on it,”
