The BJP leaders' have been attacking Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan for his "extreme intolerance" comment, but superstar Salman Khan refused to be drawn into the debate over the same. When Salman was asked about the "feeling of intolerance" in the country and BJP MP Yogi Adityanath comparing Shah Rukh to Pakistani terrorist Hafiz Saeed, steering clear of making a direct comment on the issue, he said, "This is a wrong forum for that...We are here to promote 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'. But I will answer your question. My mother is Sushila Charak, my father is Salim Khan."
Salman added he was not "aware" of Shah Rukh's remarks on intolerance and hence could not answer the question. When pressed for his reaction, his film's co-star Sonam Kapoor interjected and insisted answering on his behalf.
