I wont say ‘Sorry’ to Shiv Sena: Shah Rukh
Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan isn’t rattled by the Shiv Sena’s protests outside his house for supporting the presence of Pakistani players in the Indian Premier League.
The superstar told CNN-IBN that he isn’t willing to change his position on the eve of the release of his film, My name is Khan.
“Whatever I have said, I have said as a very proud Indian and a very righteous Indian. I am not going to back down on that because I cannot be sorry for being an Indian,” said Shah Rukh Khan.
The Bollywood actor also lashed out at Shiv Sena for damaging property during their protests.
“I do feel bad and I would want to apologise who has been affected by the protests and whose property has been destroyed because it’s not an attack on property. It’s an attack on liberty,” he said.
Shah Rukh Khan had said Pakistan players should not have been ignored in the auction for the third edition of IPL and India should welcome Pakistan players with ‘open arms’.
