After a few politicians called actor Shah Rukh Khan a ‘Pakistani agent’ and ‘deshdrohi’ (traitor) for his comments on the growing intolerance in India, the actor’s Happy New Year co-star Sonu Sood has come out in his defence and called him a ‘grounded’ and ‘generous’ person who ‘speaks from his heart.’
Sonu interacted with his fans on Friday over a quick question and answer session on Twitter.
When asked whether he was supporting Shah Rukh, Sonu tweeted:
Srk is the most grounded n generous actor I have come across who speaks from his heart.
Earlier, actor Anupam Kher had come out in SRK’s support after BJP MP Yogi Adityanath likened him to Pakistani terrorist Hafiz Saeed following his comment on growing intolerance in India.
BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya had called SRK a deshdrohi (traitor) while his party colleague Sadhvi Prachi dubbed him a ‘Pakistani agent’.
