Khan felt that the youth should circumvent all that is said about India and Pakistan by the politicians and say, “It (Pakistan) is a great neighbour to have. We are great neighbours, They are good neighbours. Let us love each other.”
“Let me be honest. My family is from Pakistan, my father was born there and his family is from there,” he said.

Terrorism doesn’t usually concern Bollywood but the recent bomb blast at the German Bakery in Pune couldn’t have come at a worst time for the Maharashtra Government and Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan. In the last few days there has been a ego clash been the Congress and the Shiv Sena over the release of the Shahrukh’s movie My Name Is Khan. The movie had released all across Maharashtra especially in Mumbai amidst tight security.
This after Shiv Sena had called for a boycott of the movie after Shahrukh has supported the cause of the Pakistani players in the IPL. Sena had termed Shahrukh as a traitor who supported the cause of the Pakistan whose hand has been confirmed in the Mumbai attack. If Pakistan’s hand in the Pune blasts is proven, Shahrukh will find it tough to save his face. For now the My Name Is Khan actor has been silent on the issue.
Shiv Sena which has been vocal in it’s opposition to Shahrukh Khan has criticised the government. In the party mouthpiece Uddhav Thackeray said “It is the sin of (Ashok) Chavan that killed nine innocents in the terror attack” Criticising the extra security cover given to Shahrukh’s movie instead of busy market areas he added “The bomb blast could have been avoided if the same security was given at appropriate places.”
