Noida, Jan 29 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, whose views on “extreme intolerance” in the country had led to a controversy last year, avoided queries about the subject at an event here on Friday.
The actor was here to make a formal announcement regarding edutainment theme park KidZania here when he was asked whether he feels that his ‘intolerance’ remark made people conscious in the society.
Shah Rukh responded: �I feel there is a specific platform for everything. Here we are talking about kids, so it would be good to talk about this on a platform where it is being discussed.”
Earlier, the “Happy New Year” star had said: �I do think there is intolerance. There is extreme intolerance.�
His views were then criticised by many politicians and the film fraternity.
Apart from Shah Rukh, superstar Aamir Khan also said during an event last year that there is �growing despondency� in India.
On the film front, Shah Rukh, who was last seen on the silver screen in �Dilwale�, has films like �Fan� and �Raees� slated for release this year.
