At the recently held Filmfare Awards, the starlet while giving an interview to the media at the red carpet, called SRK “uncle”. She said, "I remember when my father used to host the Filmare with Shah Rukh uncle. I used to love it". Her one word was enough to leave all SRK fans fuming with anger.
Here are some of the tweets:
Sara Ali Khan called SRK uncle at Filmfare and people are trolling her. What do you expect a 23 YO to call a 50 plus man who is in real life, older than her father? Stupid fans need to accept their hero has aged enough to be called uncle.— ਪੰਜਾਬ ਨਾਗਰਿਕ (@akdwaaz) March 27, 2019
Will people be okay if someone outside the industry, who is not a star kid does the same? Some banners might even ban the person to be in good books of SRK. She could call him uncle when it's a personal meet owing to her knowing him from childhood. It's a professional platform.— Kiranmayi G (@glskiranmayi) March 28, 2019
Rightly said. On professional platform she shud hv addressed him as Sir or Mister or ji..u cant address smone as mama jija uncle aunty on such platforms. This hs nothing to do with his age.— Chowkidar Viraam 🇮🇳🇨🇦 (@WhatElseIsOnTV) March 28, 2019
Let's put it this way , SRK Amitabh Bachchan Ko uncle Bolte to kaisa lagta?— Naveen Bagga (@naveenbagga1) March 28, 2019
I am not saying Uncle bolna is disrespectful, but "Sir" is much better!
Even i'm furious at Sara Ali Khan and totally support people who trolled her. How could she call SRK uncle when he looks like a grandfather to her?— Neeche Se Topper (@NeecheSeTopper) March 28, 2019
