When SRK was accused of being anti-Indian!
Superstar Shahrukh Khan is very upset with the current state of being a Muslim, post 9/11 attacks. According to SRK, he became an "inadvertent object of political leaders", who thinks that Muslims in India are unpatriotic.

Talking to IANS, Shahrukh Khan said, "I sometimes become the inadvertent object of political leaders who choose to make me a symbol of all that they think is wrong and unpatriotic about Muslims in India." "There have been occasions when I have been accused of bearing allegiance to our neighbouring nation rather than my own country - this even though I am an Indian, whose father fought for the freedom of India. Rallies have been held where leaders have exhorted me to leave and return what they refer to my original homeland," he added.

"I gave my son and daughter names that could pass for generic (pan-India and pan-religious) ones - Aryan and Suhana. The Khan has been bequeathed by me so they can't really escape it," Khan said.
