SRK refuses to comment on Ghulam Ali concert

Kolkata, Jan 11 (IANS) Once bitten twice shy. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Monday refused to comment on Pakistani ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali’s upcoming performance in the eastern metropolis because of how people react whenever he makes political or religious remarks.

“Because of the reaction I get whenever I make political or religious comments, I will not use this platform to say anything on this,” Shah Rukh told the media here in response to a poser on Ghulam Ali’s concert.

Shah Rukh’s comments on the recent intolerance debate created quite a stir, but the 50-year-old actor maintained that he had not said anything which merited an apology.

However, he regretted that the box office collection of his film “Dilwale” was adversely affected due to protests by people who “misinterpreted” and “misconstrued” his comments on intolerance in the country.

Ghulam Ali will perform at the Netaji Indoor Stadium here on Tuesday.

After the cancellation of his concert in Mumbai due to threats by the Shiv Sena, Ghulam Ali in November had expressed his disappointment asserting “never to return to India”.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had offered Kolkata as a venue following the cancellation of the Mumbai concert in October.
