On the reality show, Shah Rukh Khan said, “Humne koi Hindu-Musalman ki baat hi nahi ki. Meri biwi Hindu hai, main Musalman hoon. Aur mere jo bacche hain, wo Hindustan hain. (My wife is Hindu, I am Muslim, and our kids are Indians)” The audience clapped at this and he further stated that in schools, his kids are often made to fill in forms where they have to mention their religion.

“Jab wo school gae to school me wo bharna padta hai ki religion kya hai. To jab meri beti choti thi, usne aa ke pucha bhi mujhse ek baar, ‘papa hum kaun se religion ke hain?’ Maine usme ye likha ki hum Indian hi hain yaar, koi religion nahi hai. Aur hona bhi nahi chahiye.”
On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Aanand L Rai’s film Zero, also starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. However, the film failed to do well at the box-office and post that, he hasn’t announced any film yet.
