There is no religion in my house: Shah Rukh Khan

Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) had been attracting quite some heat of late for not speaking on India’s current socio-political climate.

But he redeemed himself on a special Republic Day episode of the reality show Dance Plus, wherein he spoke of how he and his wife Gauri have taught their children that they do not belong to any religion, reported India Today. 

“We never talked about being Hindu or Muslim. My wife is a Hindu, I’m a Muslim and my children are Hindustani,” said Khan.

The Zero actor went on to add how they often have to deal with situations that require his children’s belief system to be specified. “In school, you know how we have to fill out forms and they ask for religion? When my daughter was young, she asked me what religion we belong to and I told her that we are Indians and have no religion,” SRK recalled.

Hailed as King Khan in the fraternity, SRK has been vocal about not imposing any religion on his children. He has even gone on record  previously to say that he gave his son Aryan and daughter Suhana “names that could pass as generic (pan-India and pan-religious) names.”

SRK said, “The Khan has been bequeathed by me so they can’t really escape it.”

The statement has elicited mixed reactions from people on social media, with many labelling it ‘meaningless.’ Others have been hailing SRK as an idol for speaking up.
