Nobody is bigger patriot than me, Shah Rukh Khan on intolerance debate


Actor Shah Rukh Khan has said that nobody in India was bigger patriot than him.

Responding to a question related to his previous comment saying the intolerance had increased in India, the Fan star told India TV, “People misunderstood me on my previous statement on intolerance. There’s no one bigger patriot than me. And I am stating this for the last time. The comments about me on social media often makes me cry. How many times do I have to say that I am a patriot. There shouldn’t be any controversy on such silly matters.”
