SRK: Publicity stunt? Shut up, sickos!

11 02 2010

He tweets, “I have the courage of conviction by my side. My name is Shahrukh Khan… and I think it is more than just a name. My mother and father had told me so and my son and daughter believe it so.”

He states firmly, “If my partners lose so be it. If I lose, so be it. My stardom is transient. My integrity is non-negotiable…My being Indian unquestionable. Anyone asks me about this issue anymore…they can read my tweets. Now what happens with the release of the  film, is the film’s fate. I want to enjoy my film everywhere. I want to enjoy it within myself. And to sickos who think this is for publicity, two words: SHUT UP!!”

The  actor appeals, “Appeal to all to understand that Mumbai is the Gateway of India to the world. I do this all around the world and can do so wherever needed. The  film industry is India’s cultural ambassador all around the globe. All of us have the responsibilty to protect the fair name of Mumbai… Mumbai’s legendary film industry and its spirit of pluralism and tolerance.”

He asks, “Am I getting paranoid? Of my own words and interviews. My English teacher told me not to write too much..wife says not to say too much. Writing all this so that I know that I haven’t really said anything bad in the last few days to anyone and it is clear now and not muddled.”

He maintains, “I think these conspiracy theories on art, sports, etc being used to fund untoward activities is completely off the mark. Why should we have this demarcation permeate in fields of art, sports, culture and otherwise normal things? Is that a wrong way to think? We have bad people in India, Pakistan and everywhere else. Nobody including me stands by anyone who is bad or resorts to inhuman acts. There are good and bad people in all groups or places. For the acts of bad by some we cannot generalise on grounds of physical boundaries.”

Shah Rukh adds, “I have the courage of conviction by my side. I explain because better to do that, than create aggression and division in my country. I have no ego or false sense of pride. My words have been benign and without ill will to any person(s) or my nation. I also hope with what I write and say I have not hurt anybody’s sensibilities or sentiments. My intention is never to do so.”

Finally, he says, “Hope peace prevails. Hope misunderstandings get cleared. Hope nobody is hurt. Hope all leaders and activists have largesse of heart.”
